    This is probably one of my favorite posts. Definitely a good reminder, at the minimum, and keeps good perspective. Gracias. 

  2. That’s really cool, that writing helped fill the creative itch. When you have small kids, that part of you seems to wither–or it did for me. When I finally got to sit and draw again when the baby was 3 months old, I felt like a parched plant getting watered. I shall look up your books!

  3. So writing a brilliant novel doesn’t qualify as brainy, eh, Shan? 🙂

    Seriously, thank you for this great post. It really is such a needed reminder to love what we love because of our love for God. Loving for any other reason allows that love object–whether a talent, a person, a gift from God, a job–to become an idol.


    • Ha! It’s brainy in an entirely different kind of way. And you are so right. It’s far too easy for these things we’ve been given to turn into an idol. We must be loving for the right reasons. I have to remind myself of this a lot.
