One of my things I love that God has given me as a masterpiece, is my humor. All my life I have been able to bring laughter, it comes natural with me. When I was young I lost hearing in my left ear from German Measles, so therefore I could not hear if someone came up to me on that side, or behind me. And I always had to make sure I stood or sit where I could hear well. At school I always would sit where I knew I would hear the teachers and be able to talk to new friends I would meet. At work I always would get in a position where I would be able to hear well. Did this always succeed? No, it didn’t 🙂
One day at work my co-workers and I were working together on a project talking away and one of them started talking about “The Eagles” and I thought this was unusual because this co-worker was into music not nature, but I was listening to everyone ( I thought ); when I up and ask ” How big were the eagles?” (which is a good question if that was what they were talking about), but then they all started laughing and commented ” Gail, we love you, you bring laughter when we need it” ( of course I had no clue why 🙂 and then my co-worker went to explain that ” The Eagles” he was talking about was a “Music Group” not the “Live Flying Eagles”. Then I started laughing. Times through the years I could have gotten mad, angry, bitter from when I would misunderstand someone, BUT, I didn’t. GOD HAD TURN MY MESS INTO A MASTERPIECE!
The way I hear is natural for me. I cannot tell you the number of times I did not catch every thing someone said or misunderstood ( and ask them to explain:0 ) but through it all, always laughter was the outcome. I know God turned my hearing that could have been a “MESS INTO A MASTERPIECE of laughter. 🙂
For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago. Ephesians 2:10
