A Gift from God. Talent is one of many gifts from God. I truly appreciate my gift and ability to play and write music. It’s like my life’s blood and purpose on earth. Recently, I ran across an amazing talent again … Akiane Kramarik (see my link to her art in my ‘Recommendations’ section of this newsletter). She’s the artist who painted the ‘Prince of Peace’ masterpiece when she was just eight years old. Divine intervention anyone? In her biography, it states that she is a child prodigy who paints and writes poetry. According to Akiane, her art is inspired by her visions of heaven, and her personal connection with God, which began at age four. The interest in Akiane has reached unprecedented proportions, with over 200 published art works, 800 literary creations, two published best-selling books, regular appearances on prime-time TV, radio, and multiple outlets. Akiane was also mentioned in the movie, “Heaven Is for Real,” about a childhood near-death experience who confirmed the resemblance to Jesus that he witnessed on his journey. So, find your purpose, your passion, and your Gift from God. It doesn’t matter where you live, your age or anything else. It’s just up to you!
