Thankful for the "Little" Things

My family & close friends have always known I value the "little" things people do for people. 

Lots of little things become big things. They make an impact, they mean something, and they can even change lives for the better. Saying and doing positive "little" things for people is never overrated. We never know what others need in life and any good little thing can help. It can brighten our day and lift our spirits when we need it most.

That's how I felt after people took a few seconds out of their lives to type a few words of happiness, to dial 10 digits of joyfulness, and to drive a few miles of gladness. All to wish me well by saying loving words of kindness on a day I really needed it. 

Sometimes even the encourager needs encouraging. And even though I have most assuredly mastered the ability to encourage myself like David did (1 Samuel 30:6b), there's no doubt I need external support. We all do. We need the things we can't give ourselves. All of us need certain things from certain people, because we are not everything. One of the reasons the Lord put us on the earth was to fellowship and encourage each other. So I have no problem saying that just as certain people need me, I also need them. I wouldn't be who I am if it were not for the people God has placed in my life. Those people are on social media, in other parts of the world, and in person. It doesn't matter where they are, people are people, and we need each other.

Could you begin to imagine life without people? Without friends and family? Sometimes we say we wish we could just whiz through traffic without anyone else on the road, but we really don't want that. It would be a lonely existence. 

So, I wanted to take a moment via this blog post to say how thankful I am for you who are reading it and those who are reading it in the spirit. You may not know this, but you inspire me to be better. I appreciate your interest in who I am as a person. And I am thankful and grateful that God orchestrated it all for His glory and His honor.

Thank you so much.

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
