A dear friend asked me today what makes me come alive. What things do I do that excites a passion in me. It didn’t take long to answer her. I love to bake, and I love the great outdoors. I smile when I make pie! And I get absolutely giddy when I walk in the woods or along a beach and discover every bit of creation I possibly can! And on top of that, I LOVE to make others aware of these discoveries. I’ve actually had to restrain myself from grabbing someone by the shoulders, shake them, slap their head and say, “Wake up! Can’t you see or smell all this delicious nature all around you?!?!?! Or smell and taste this wonderful pie – and savor every bite?!?!?!?!”
Whew! That just got me going all over again! What is your passion? What makes YOU come alive? Why not take the time, right now, to stop what you are doing and THINK – what is it that makes me come alive? And then go another step – do it. Take that first step to do what you have a passion for (if you’re not already doing it). It may be small at first but no matter, just begin. I do believe your life will become so much brighter because THAT passion is what God put in you to begin with and HE gets happy when we do what He made us to do.
