Shaped by God and Blessed by His GraceDid you know that God's grace is sufficient? He has shaped and created you for His purpose. Perhaps you are you the kite or maybe you are the string. Regardless of your shape, you are fearfully and wonderfully made.Everyone has a story. The Kite, is a collection of my personal stories which illustrate how I have allowed God to shape me. We all experience extreme ups and significant downs in our daily lives. Through God's grace and with humble hearts, we can learn to love, to forgive, and sometimes to simply move on. An open heart creates a more loving attitude toward your family, your friends and even yourself. The conclusion is--nothing is by chance. Every day is a gift. God gives you your circumstances for your betterment. Why not chose to use the good and the bad for your ultimate good. You will get a glimpse at God's grace, love, and His promises in the everyday through my eyes. Each chapter is a snapshot at how I strive to use my circumstances not only to survive, but to thrive: - Running the race with perseverance- Magnifying the good- Feeding the Spirit- Loving unconditionally- Conquering mountains- Flying into the wind- Minding the gaps- Bending and not breaking- Thriving with "what's left..". and more Pamela Hill Sharp, co-owner of Sharp's Hill Vineyards and Winery, enjoys family life with her husband, Rob, and their two sons, Spencer and Alec.
