Hello everyone. My name is Sherry and I want to share a story of hope and encouragement. God has me on a new path and I hope I can spark some interest and become a help to somebody.
As the title mentions, I came from humble beginnings. My young life was nothing extraordinary, and nothing to brag about, or so I thought. I was the youngest of 4 until my 2 younger brothers were born from my mom’s second marriage. I lived in Cleveland, Ohio until we moved to Koenton, Alabama when I was 11 years old. Talk about an extreme climate change! No more white Christmas or even the possibility for a white Christmas. I also went from a well-known city to a place that was not even on a map! If I ever wanted to be known, well now that was even more of a slim chance. However, I thank God that popularity was never my goal in life. Perhaps that is why I was never popular. As a matter of fact, I was never social either. I stayed to myself most of the time. I had a best friend for a little while before we moved to Alabama, but there was a traumatic event that ended my friendship. I did not have another close friend until I was in college in my twenties. However, once we graduated and went our separate ways, it was not long before we lost touch.
What I am trying to convey is that I was a nobody and I was alright with that. It seemed to work better for me to be a loner as a child. However, as I have gotten older and closer to God, I have come to realize that I need to be more social and more sociable, so here I am starting my first blog. Despite my humble beginnings and lack of a social impact, God now has me on a new path to reach some people and make a difference. This is the first of many posts that I hope will be relevant to others as I work to improve the quality of life for God’s people. Please stay tuned for more to come about my life and about this new path that God has me on! Until we meet again, I pray blessings for your life!
