Born to Create

When I was a little girl, around six years old, my mother gave me a diary. She explained that I should write in it everyday. And as strange as it may seem, I believe that was the beginning of my writing career.

In truth, she had an ulterior motive at the time. It seems her greatest fear was the thought that I might follow in her footsteps…make the same mistakes.

After a month of daily writing, Mother surprised me one day by handing the book back to me. “What do you mean you kissed a boy at school?” She opened the book and read a page where I wrote: “Dear Diary, today I met a boy and he was so cute that I gave him a kiss during recess.”

I couldn’t understand why she was so angry. After she finished screaming, and crying…I looked up at her and said, “But Momma, I’m just writing a story.”

And so it began…my passion to create “my story”. Of course, I’m not the only one in my family who has that gift. For I truly believe we all have a gift to create something. We get it from the original Creator, God the Father.

If you ever open a Bible, you discover: “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.” (Genesis 1:1) So, isn’t it logical that we were each born to create in some way?

I challenge each of you to find what you were meant to create. For it’s inside your DNA. You were born with a purpose to create a small portion of this great place we call, “Life”. So why don’t you ask God what it is He wants you to do, and just get on with it.

Be blessed, Donna
