31 days of Graceful Becoming

31 one days...rigth at this moment it seems like a long time... 

I am very excited to join a community of ladies who for 31 days will be writing about a topic in the month of October. I will be sharing with you some thoughts on grace. I have been drawn to grace these last few months. To learn more about it, fill my thoughts with it, embrace it, and live it out  is my desire. My thoughts and experiences will be catalogued here. I invite you to join me in my journey of Graceful Becoming. I discovered a definition of grace recently and it has left me hungry for more. I will be unpacking this defenition throughout the month. So I leave you with it ponder it, take it, and try it out...

" Grace, particularly that which causes joy, pleasure, gratification, favor acceptance for a kindness granted or desired, a benefit, thanks, gratitude. The absolutely free expression of the loving kindness of God to men finding its only motive in the bounty and benevolence of the Giver; unearned, unmerited favor; it changes the individual to a new creature with out destroying his individuality."
(Complete Word Study Dictionary of the New Testament)

There shall be eternal summer in the grateful heart. ~Celia Thaxter

summer is coming to end there is a crispness in the air that marks it so. This summer my heart overflows with gratefulness. I have been blessed beyond my imagination. in the next few weeks I will be sharing some of the gifts I have received from The Lord.

this calling of raising children has so many joys, lessons, heart checks, and adventures...but it truly  goes by fast. Lord, help me to make the most of it.

 There is a time for everything,
    and a season for every activity under the heavens:
ecclesiastes 3:1
