Kate said, “POTENTIAL.”
Tricky word, potential. We all have it. But we all don’t use it.
As I went through the clicks to get here and begin typing my mind was processing the word. I don’t allow myself to mull over it overnight – like an aged apple cider. I want the words fresh pressed. New. I like to challenge my ………..

Do you type? Yes.
Are you a good manager? Yes, I manage a household quite well.
How are you with people? Well, I’m great with kids.
Communication skills? I write superb letters.
I see potential.
His name was Dick C. and he gave me my first “real” job because he saw potential. I cannot express how grateful I am to him – he taught me everything there was to know about running a business alongside him. He was my business college education. Things went awry with HIS company but the knowledge I gained was priceless.
Now, I had real potential in the workplace and I went far and above my own expectations.
What’s your potential? Are you honing it? Are you honoring God with it?
Potential. We all have it; however, we don’t all use it.
