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

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.

God blesses whomever he wants to bless, whenever he wants to bless them

Daily Devotional Podcast. Follow along with blog post. When I was going through a dark time -- when I had nothing -- there was a certain person who helped me sometimes. She helped me whenever she basically felt like it, but she did help, and for that I'm appreciative. But, something interesting happened after I started growing out of my despair. Something interesting started happening when I no longer needed her for anything. And something interesting happened even though I remained kind and grateful towards. The interesting thing that happened was that she started hating on me. She started treating me differently. At first I was really bothered by it, because I thought she and her husband were nice people I wanted in my life. I liked that they had a sense of compassion and were interested in helping people who were down and low. That really appealed to me, because I was raised that way; my mother was raised that way; her mother was raised that way, and it goes back to as fa
