Day ONE,
Paragraph ONE:

    
Did you know that there are areas of real estate in your own community that contain something so valuable that all of the world's money, diamonds, gold, and precious minerals pale by comparison?  Where are those areas?  They are found in your local cemeteries!  They are the most wealthy places of all because, buried within the graves, there are songs that were never sung, books that were never written, businesses that were never started, and encouraging words that were never spoken.  All of those wonderful things, and countless others, too many to list, never became more than good intentions, and now lie buried six feet underground.

Question to ponder:
What is at least ONE of the wonderful things that you are personally passionate about doing, but have yet to begin working on it?  _________________________________________

Keith's "Comments from the Author":
"Just one facet of God’s beauty is His ability to create so many things so differently; that includes us.  There are no two people who are created alike, or who are wired for the same purpose.  Hence, there are no two people alike in their gifts and abilities.  We are each uniquely designed to fulfill a part in God’s plan and divine purpose for all of His Creation.  There were monumental times in my life when I stepped out in faith to multiply my talents as an offering of love and gratitude to God.  Through my life, I took advantage of tremendous opportunities where God would be magnified in the eyes of those who saw, or heard, what I was stepping out in faith to accomplish *with* Him.  I am compelled to set out and use my talents, IN WHOLE, because it was God Who wired them in me to begin with.”

"For the Kingdom of Heaven is as a man travelling into a far country...
(We encourage you to pull up the parable of the talents found in Matthew 25. As you read it and meditate on it, take notice of the parallels between the three men and their talents, and the talents that God has given you and each one of us. I don’t know about you, but I sure don’t want to find myself standing before our Almighty, Loving God having made the same mistake that the man who buried his talent made. Let's multiply our talents as an offering of love to God. There’s nothing more wonderful than working w-i-t-h God to fulfill the plan He has made for our lives.)
...and cast ye the unprofitable servant into outer darkness:  there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth." (Matthew 25:14-30)
