Exodus 31:6b "and in the hearts of all who are skillful I have put skill..." I believe that God gives us all of our talents & gifts. And each person has a different set of them. Mine happen to be in the area of needlework. Please enjoy the talents & gifts God gave to me that I am blessed to be able to share with you!!
