When I heard about Whitney Houston, I stopped and sighed. She was barely older than I am. Her voice has inspired me over the years. I loved her spark, her joy. Her talent is such a great loss. But when I got to really thinking, her talent has been greatly unused for a time. In recent years, she has seemed so sad, so bereft of all the effervescence she had been known for. Addiction and abuse had definitely taken it's toll.
|One of my favorite Whitney moments|
How sad is it that this beautiful, talented, gifted woman succumbed to a life of abuse, addiction and neglect?
But for the grace of God, there go I. What talents have I hidden under a bushel? Not a bushel of addiction but hidden none-the-less.
I want to be a faithful servant, investing my talents as God leads.
