Thoughts - September 30, 2016

"Great talents are the most lovely and often the most dangerous fruits on the tree of humanity. They hang upon the most slender twigs that are easily snapped off." Carl Jung

In our beautiful little rock church, sitting alongside the Blue Ridge Parkway, we recite each week a prayer of confession. My heart sometimes pangs as we come to these words: " wandering from your ways, in wasting your gifts, in forgetting your love...." My sin is looking at my gifts as a slender twig -- and forgetting they are attached to a Mighty Oak. (Amen). - Beth Almond Ford
