Sharon’s Annual Letter – a Little Late

Dearest Friends and Family, As I prepare to write each year’s letter, I reread the previous year’s letters. Rereading my 2016 letter was like reopening a fresh wound and rubbing salt in it. My grief has “improved,” lessening in intensity and frequency, but it remains constant. I have always believed that even our worst moments […]

Psalm 91 God's Umbrella of Protection by Peggy Ruth
Sharon Rainey is on page 39 of 125 of Psalm 91 God's Umbrella of Protection: On page 39. I’m reading it slowly and methodically to make sure I am correctly interpreting the words. So far, I find that the words apply to me. It’s inspiring and comforting.

“I did the only thing I knew how to do: I built my own walls of silence to disguise my desperation and what later came to be recognized and diagnosed as depression.”
Sharon E. Rainey, Making a Pearl from the Grit of Life

“I thought by masking the depression with silence, the feelings might disappear.”
Sharon E. Rainey, Making a Pearl from the Grit of Life

“With each opportunity before me, God presented me with a choice. I could accept His offerings, His wisdom, His grace. Or I could choose to hold onto the pain, the anger and the resentment a little longer.”
Sharon E. Rainey, Making a Pearl from the Grit of Life

“The opposite of love is not hate, it's indifference. The opposite of art is not ugliness, it's indifference. The opposite of faith is not heresy, it's indifference. And the opposite of life is not death, it's indifference.”
Elie Wiesel

“I’m not ‘different’ from anyone else. Crises and tough emotional periods are the grit around which my inner self has been formed. Some, I have come through with more grace than others.”
Sharon E. Rainey, Making a Pearl from the Grit of Life

“With each challenging situation, each nightmare— each new piece of grit embraced and transformed—I came through with a more loving family, deeper friendships, and an even more profound relationship with God.”
Sharon E. Rainey, Making a Pearl from the Grit of Life

“With each opportunity before me, God presented me with a choice. I could accept His offerings, His wisdom, His grace. Or I could choose to hold onto the pain, the anger and the resentment a little longer.”
Sharon E. Rainey, Making a Pearl from the Grit of Life

“I had to clear up my messy life. By letting go of the debris and filth, I have come to a deeper, more soulful beauty and clarity like an oasis in the desert. From that place of clarity, a vision of what I could have, what I could do, who I could be has emerged if I allow my heart to become a place of compassion, acceptance and forgiveness.”
Sharon E. Rainey, Making a Pearl from the Grit of Life
