Five Minute Friday: I Feel Loved When…

Hearing compliments about what I write or things I do is something I crave. It's when I feel loved. Needing that affirmation. 

But this can also be dangerous. I can start to think I can do it all in my own power. And that's not the case. In other words I have to guard against the proverbial big head. 

Any gift I have or well performed task or well written blog post should be credited back to God. Not me. Who am I without the gifts he gives me? Without the graces he gives me? 

So I constantly seek balance. Accepting the compliments as grace and returning the thanks to him for the gifts he gave me. Just another way he's teaching me Eucharisteo. Giving thanks.
