Hand Icon

Colors of God's awesome rainbow
Color is the New Black.

Today I'm going to talk about it. 

Yep, you heard it right. Color. But it's not what you may think. Well, not exactly

You ever heard of emoji's? They're small images mainly used for texting, that are used to express emotions and a whole host of other things. They're tons of them.

Sometime in 2015, Apple added emoji keyboards. Today when I send a text I can choose an array of colors to enhance certain objects. When I use that feature I almost always ask myself what took them so long? Those colors are great. I love the different shades -- a celebration of a rainbow, sort of speak. 

Additionally, Mattel creators rolled out their new Barbie dolls sometime in 2015. The dolls now come in different sizes and different shades. What a fitting concept. I used to play with Barbie dolls when I was a young girl. If only I had the choices many little girls have today, I'm sure I would have found a way to get my mother to buy them all. The new emojis and the new Barbie dolls are rainbows of appreciation and a celebration of color. Brilliant. 

Not everyone caught on though.

Like, the "iconic" icon hand. You know, that hand you see when you're on the Internet and you hover over certain text?

How long have we seen that hand? Lacking in imagination and vision: Uninspiring. Traditional. Ordinary. Ho-hum. 

I'm wondering when the Internet powers-that-be will get with the program. Maybe the emoji and Barbie people should hook up with them to let them know it's 2016. And while they're at it ask them why we they are still using a one-trick pony icon hand. We want something more exciting for our clicking experience. Imagine how much more fun it would be deciding what color our icon hand would be. Maybe I should find out where the icon hand CEO's are, click on their boring link, and ask them myself.

Just another thing to think about that seems small, but is really a big deal, so much so that I thought it important enough to write about it.

Proverbs 20:15b, "...the lips of knowledge are a precious jewel."

I feel free

Daily Devotional Podcast. Follow along with blog post. How are you feeling today? What kind of head space have you been in lately? I ask, because I'm just wondering if anybody feels like me -- free like me. Free as an eagle. Free as can be. That's right, out with doing business the old stale way and in with a fresh new operation. It's a shifting happening in the atmosphere of Sharon's life and I'm moving on to the big and awesome things God has for me. What  do you say for yourself? What are you speaking over your life? What it is for you?  For me, I am no longer afraid to go out in the deep end. I am no longer afraid to fly higher, I am no longer concerned about what I have or do not have, and I am no longer concerned about what anybody thinks or says. Who the heck cares anymore? I don't. Because God tells me he doesn't give me a spirit of fear or timidity ( 2 Timothy 1 :7) , but He gives me a spirit of love, confidence, power, self-control, and

God is Real

I've often had conversations about how we know God is real, about how we know His spirit lives, about how we know we are spiritual beings in human form (not the other way around). The answers lie in the beginning starting with the living  spirit of God and how the world began. God is Real. He's a living breathing spirit, an organism.  God is love . I often wonder how it is that some people think the opposite though. That the world began with a bang, a big bang, a black hole, whatever else they want to call it. The question I always raise to such a "theory" is, how was love created? How was flesh, blood, bones, or our souls created? What I mean by soul is that part of us that perceives "silently" what we do, think, believe, feel, and our mind, our will, our intellect, our emotions. Science or no bang or hole of any sort can explain that. If science can indeed come up with an explanation that does not include God, then let me know. In fact, let us all kno

Protecting My Peace - Day 98 - Momentum and Movement, That’s What's Up

Click to listen to current podcast episode. “Never Giving Up” are power-words — strong affirmations that give us momentum and movement. That’s what’s up. We can do so much more in our lives when we have momentum and movement. It’s about standing, literally and not sitting or laying around feeling sorry for ourselves. I used to do that once upon a time and that sorrowful thinking is for the birds. We don’t have to be down. We can get up and get going even if we start small. In fact, I love starting small, because it helps set a firm foundation of habits and routines. Momentum and movement will help us get and maintain a position of strength to do what God says we can do.
