I recently took an inventory of my spiritual gifts. My number two and three gifts were Nurturing Leadership and Faith. My faith is central to my life and I seek to love and serve God in all I do. My primary spiritual gift of Visionary and Managing Leadership can best be described with an analogy from my love of sailing. The owner of the yacht decides where it will go, the navigator determines how to get there, and the helmsman actually gets the boat to its destination. I am a skilled navigator and helmsman both on the water and in life.
It was Thomas Moore who said, “The vessel in which soul-making takes place is an inner container scooped out by reflection and wonder.”
I try to make time on weekends for creative and stimulating pursuits.
Some of the activities that I enjoy are painting, with watercolors or acrylics, reading mysteries, keeping a journal, and drinking hot tea or hot cocoa.
What does rejuvenation look like for you?
