Our first day back at school brought no students and professional development. And along with it, a long lunch! it offered us the opportunity to leave campus, and gather together, and break bread. Tortillas, that is.
I joined a group of ladies at a nearby restaurant I had only heard about, but never experienced before that day. El Rio Verde. Authentic Mexican food at its finest!
And I dove right in! I ordered the menu item they are famous for, the Wet Burrito.
Wet because it is drenched in their homemade salsa. Chock full of wonderfully seasoned carne asada.
Delicious! Muy bueno!
What are you famous for? What is your special skill or talent? Your gift from God? We all have something. God created each of us with unique gifts and talents so we can serve others.
After eating almost the entire burrito, I think my talent is eating! LOL I do enjoy sampling cuisine of all different tastes and regions. The spicier the better for me!
But, I have to say, I believe my God given talent is serving. Through the written word. Writing. I love to do it! It flows with ease! I never know what each day will bring. I’m simply the vessel. God flows from within.
May each of you use your God given gifts to serve those around you. If you are uncertain what yours may be, look around you. What do you enjoy? What do others compliment you about that you do? Odds are, that’s your talent. Your gift. Use it, and watch it grow!
And while you’re at it, head on down to 38 N. Trenton Ave. for the best wet burrito this side of the Rio Grande!
As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as stewards of God’s varied grace. 1 Peter 4:10
Love and laughter,
