“The meaning of life is to find your gift. The purpose of life is to give it away.” Pablo Picasso Hmmm, not only was Picasso a great artist (beauty is in the eyes of the beholder), but he also had some pretty good things to say.

Ryan has a lot of gifts. Most are stifled at the moment, but one that shines as brightly as ever is his gift of encouragement. Please allow me a little leeway here as I attempt to explain. As I look at him laying there, he encourages me to be strong, persevering, loving, kind and hopeful. I have been built up in faith as a result of this gift of his. Thank you Ryan for sharing your gift with me…with us.
1 Thessalonians 5:11 Therefore encourage one another and build one another up, just as you are doing.
