In today’s service at church, God placed it on my heart to “Celebrate someone else” and let them know they are appreciated. Often times, we get so wrapped in ourselves, our needs, our wants, and our world, that we fail to realize that the people around us might need a pat on the back, a word of encouragement, a JUST BECAUSE, and today, God reminded me that Sonya, it is time to reach out to those who have encouraged, mentored, inspired, motivated, challenged, and/or hurt me and let them know their efforts are appreciated. Regardless to whether someone is looking out for your best interest or challenged you and/or against you, God has placed them in your path for a reason. With that in mind, I will honor, appreciate, and acknowledge them for building me, inspiring, and challenging me to be more than what I am today.
