I am asking God for a talent for writing.  
I enjoyed being an editor for a weekly newspaper so much I would like to be able to write again as I did then.  It came so easy.  Now it comes sooooo hard.

The difference, I think, was I talked to people so much and wrote about them, now I am house-bound and seldom get to visit with people.  I miss them.  I even published a book about other people I visited with. Our family visits but it takes all the time to just enjoy them, not to dig for something to write about.

Whoa, I have to tell you.  Our grandson, Gage,17, and a sophomore in high school has been awarded an honor, "Achievement Honors in Academics and Engineering."  Really thrilled us, and more when we learned it was the first time it was ever given to a sophomore, it was always for senors.  I have to brag that he is very, very smart.  He is known for teaching the teachers.  He does many, many things, including welding.

I must record this.  Gage is now over six feet tall, but I can still see him at age 3, running to bed and saying over and over, "gotta talk to Jesus."  See, it is easy to love him, his sister, and his parents.

Now, back to my wanting a talent.
I am praying to God for a talent for writing if that is what He wants.  I feel so useless now, that I have lost any talent I ever had.  I want to do something for God's glory, and I need to see what it is and what I can do.  
So I know I have to ask Him and see what He will show me.  So maybe others will pray for this too. 

Thank you,
