The Right Gift at the Right Time

This time of year you have a chance to give a gift that inspires…you just never know.

Maybe your child has asked for something unique this year, but it could be just the thing to help them find their gift…their way to shine.

Maybe you had a gift like that.  I remember the year my parents bought me a “boombox”.  Probably a weird thing for a 9 year old girl to ask for most other girls wanted Cabbage Patch Kids.    But, they obliged.  It was a dual cassette deck…I know SO cool…but I began recording radio shows on it.  I made my own commercials, told stories, even did a countdown of my favorite songs like Casey Casom.  

Saw another story of a child like that…When he was 8 years old he wanted tap shoes…It might have been hard for parents to buy their son those, but they did. 

At 19, he joined New York's American Ballet Theater. Five years later he was a principal dancer, one of his generation's best dancers in one of the world's best companies.

And 3 months ago David Hallberg was asked to become a premier dancer with Russia's famous Bolshoi Ballet, the first American ever to go to Russia to dance.

"I see myself as an ambassador," he said.

You know, we’re all ambassadors…taking the gifts and talents we have…to change the way the world sees God.
