Spotlight on talent...

I know that there are some talents that God has specifically given to me. I also know that there are some gifts that God has NOT given me! One of those talents is - art. I can do simple drawings of houses, trees, and dogs. I can also draw a pretty nice teacher "smiley face," and that's about it! There is one person I know who has definitely been blessed with this talent - my brother-in-law, Jimmy. I am so proud of him! He is currently working at Disney, drawing caricatures of the many tourists that visit throughout the year. He has done beautiful paintings - even a large portrait of Adam and I that hangs in our living room. He is always the one we turn to when we need a picture drawn or an artistic touch on something. The thing I appreciate most is that Jimmy has a real desire to use his abilities for the Lord. I am so excited to see the plans that God has for my talented brother-in-law! You may want to check out some of his work at his website Jimmy Pereira: Caricatures and Illustrations.

He is talented! I loved the illustration of the "Scary Story" with the man at a campfire and a bear behind him... funny! I often wish I had talents like that... but I'm thankful for the talents I have, talking is a good talent, right? ;)
