A Part of Life

We are each a branch, a bud, a leaf, a limb, a fruit, a fragment. An important piece of the body that makes up this thing we call life. We all have a part to play, our very own, unique contribution that we are here to make. And no one can do your part but you.

Unfortunately, most of us, are not doing what it is that we are meant to do. We do what we want to do, or more often, what we have to do and totally forget about what we are called to do. Motivated by money, fame, or superficial "success", we get lost in the world, lose sight of our purpose, then wonder why our lives are a mess.

Everyone is not meant to be a rock star, pop star, sports star or movie star. Some of us are meant to be teachers, or preachers, or poets. But instead we sacrifice our own distinctive features trying to fit into a life that's not meant for us, and it doesn't fit, and we know it.

Play your part. If not for you, then do it for me. The puzzle will forever be incomplete without your inimitable piece.

Your life is calling. Answer it!

Yours Truly,
