Paint Party Friday: Praise the Lord!

Welcome to Paint Party Friday!
This is what I painted this morning-

"He considered me trustworthy
in appointing me to the ministry."
St. Paul wrote this to Timothy
in 1 Timothy 1:12.

I think Jesus has given ALL of us
this responsibility to tell the world
what He has done for us.
We've all got different personalities
and talents and resources,
and we are equipped in different ways.
We all have a unique story to tell.

Today, I am going to give a talk
about "Social Entrepreneurship"
in Assumption College.
I am going to talk about how our business,
papemelroti, is a gift from God,
and how we partner with God
to provide livelihood for
the poor, the sick, the disadvantaged.

When we use our gifts, develop it,
share it with others,
I think that is one way of praising God.

Let us praise the Lord 
by using the gifts He gave us!
He entrusted us with these gifts,
and He wants us to use it 
to not only be a blessing to ourselves
but for it to bless others as well!

Every week I choose one wonderful visitor
who leaves a comment
to receive an ATC from me.
I know it takes so much time and effort
to leave a comment
and I appreciate it soooo much!
This week, chose
