The Body of Christ + 10 on 10

I love how God so perfectly, uniquely, individually gifted us to accomplish His purposes.
We don't all have the same gifts.
We are not all "feet."
But together, with our differences, we make up a complete body.
All parts working together in their individual job to further the Kingdom of God.
I know most people have the fear of public speaking.
I can't really wrap my head around that considering I LOVE public speaking.
If I have an audience who will listen to me, I'm in heaven!
How doesn't everyone love speaking in public?
But then Auntie came to visit.
With squeals of delight coming from the back porch, I ran out to find a tiny creature being passed around.
"Look what Auntie caught Mommy!"
I almost threw up!
"Isn't he cute?"
  "He's a baby Mommy!"
  "Do you want to hold him?"
There is no way in the universe I would EVER hold that lizard.
I don't care how tiny he was.
I know he's jump onto my face and sink his little claws
into my face so deeply that I couldn't pull him off.
He might even kill me.
As she held this lizard I kept saying,
 "not too close to your face honey. 
Thank God for Aunties!
Thank God that he has gifted some to be lizard catchers, some to risk their lives holding lizards too close to their face, and some to stand way back and take photos to remember this day!
Yes, not everyone likes public speaking.
And not everyone likes tiny, baby lizards!
