YOU ARE SOMEBODY

I simply cannot help sharing the contagious truth in these words found from the heart of E. B. White. The truth is, while looking for the beauty in life, God is flamboyantly seen everywhere!  God’s heart and mind are so incredibly magnificent and un-exhaustible, filled with every possible thing you could imagine and beyond!

“DEAR SIXTH GRADERS” Page 162 . . .

“Your essays spoke of beauty, of love, of light and darkness, of joy and sorrow, and of the goodness of life.  They were wonderful compositions.  I have seldom read any that have touched me more.   To thank you and your teacher Mrs. Ellis, I am sending you what I think is one of the most beautiful and miraculous things in the world – an egg.  I have a goose named Felicity and she lays about forty eggs every spring.  It takes her almost three months to accomplish this.  Each egg is a perfect thing.  I am mailing to you one of Felicity’s eggs.  The insides have been removed – blown out – so the egg should last forever, or almost forever.  I hope you will enjoy seeing this great egg and loving it.  Thank you for sending me your essays about being somebody.  I was pleased that so many of you felt the beauty and goodness of the world.  If we can feel that when we are young, then there is great hope for us when we grow older. “

Sincerely,

E. B. White

You too have been given an egg, not an empty egg, but one filled with purpose, by the Author of Life.  It is unique, designed just for you; like you see the perfected purpose poured out in the words of E. B. White.  You too are called to pour out what only you can develop, create, and share.  There is nothing that cannot be accomplished in the Spirit of the Lord, agree together according to the will of God for your purpose.  Jesus said in Mathew 18:19, “ Again I say to you, that if two of you agree on earth about anything that they may ask, it shall be done for them by My Father in heaven.”

      “Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness;
and let them have dominion 
over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle,
over all the earth 
and every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.”  – Genesis 1:26

     “And the LORD formed man of dust from the ground,
and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life;
and man became a living being.”   – Genesis 2:7
