March 4

I have a couple of friends that are shell artist. The beautiful things they create are quite incredible. One of the things they create is what's call a sailors valentine. The tiniest shells are arranged in such a way that an artful design comes to life. It's a tedious, time consuming craft that takes patience and a steady hand. Once a year a big show is held on Sanibel where crafters and artist from all over the world go to compete and show off their talent. Not only do they show the valentines but other amazing shell art as well. My friends are quite award winning and take home many prizes for their craftsmanship. They didn't get where they are overnight, it took effort and practice. God has given each of us talents and abilities to suit our personalities and He has a plan and a purpose to use them for His glory. So whatever your talent is, remember where it came from and glorify Him every chance you get.

and he has filled him with the Spirit of God, with skill, with intelligence, with knowledge, and with all craftsmanship, to devise artistic designs, to work in gold and silver and bronze, in cutting stones for setting, and in carving wood, for work in every skilled craft. Exodus 35:31-33

So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God. 1 Corinthians 10:31
