We all know and believe that God has given each of us a gift, something special, something unique, that enables us to become fully functional members of the body of Christ.

And I share them here with all of you, where I can challenge you, make you think, and cause you to ask questions. I am the oldest of eleven children living the country life in the deep south.

What are your thoughts?
