Our topic this week is Secret Desires.
I come from a very talented family. My sister is the master of every hand craft on the planet. She paints, she cross stitches, she quills, and she made beautiful sand art when it was the rage many years ago. I guess she's done it all over the last 30 years. I can't find my way to the front door of Hobby Lobby without getting sidetracked to the nearest book store. More than the simplest Bible school crafts are pretty lost as far as my abilities are concerned. No real loss, that was never my desire.
My mom and grandmother were tied for the title of best cook on the planet. There was always something special waiting when you walked into their kitchens. Now, I'm no slouch in this area. I have my way with cookies and my cinnamon rolls are legendary around here, but I'll never come close to measuring up to their standards.
The one talent I always wanted, and never came close to owning, is singing. There are some talented singers in my family. The attached video is from the talent show my daughter, Amber took part in while we were on our Alaskan cruise a few months ago. She can really belt it out! She did not get her ability from me.
Oh, I can belt it out...in a car...on a long trip...by myself...with the windows rolled up. But in public, my most requested song is "On A Hill Faraway"!Makes me glad that God said to make a joyful noise, because when I sing...that's pretty much all there is.
So share. What's the one thing you wish you could do that you just can't?
