Returning and resting…

Happy Monday!

How is everyone?

My goodness it’s been a tough few weeks!! I hope you all are safe and well.

 

So, I have this verse that’s been haunting me lately:

This is what the Sovereign Lord, the Holy One of Israel, says: “Only in returning to me and resting in me will you be saved. In quietness and confidence is your strength.

 

That’s Isaiah 30:15. I’ll talk more about it on Friday, but it’s a good introduction to our Monday Music.

Yes, you’ve probably guessed! 😀

 

Be well.

Two Years Old!

Some Grace With That

is

TWO YEARS OLD THIS WEEK!!

 

 

Although I didn’t start publishing it until December, I began the planning and writing on 19 September 2015.

And you know? It’s been a bit LIKE raising a baby:  I have learned SO MUCH, and some days I still am not sure I know anything!

I’ve hit countless snags, been really shocked by some discoveries, and been completely awed by how SGWT has developed.

AND, I feel like I’m  just beginning to get a feel for the ‘personality’ that fits this two-year-old!

No dirty diapers, of course, nor terrifying spikes of fever at 2am. Far fewer sleepless nights than if this were a baby. So definitely a better fit for me, but still a character building two years!

It happened that my wee blog was born during a tumultuous couple of years:

Job redundancy,

trying to parlay my skills into my own business,

earth-shaking political chaos,

long-haul move,

in tenuous livelihood circumstances, OH MY!

 

… thank God SGWT ISN’T a child; he or she would be in therapy before hitting kindergarten after being raised in all that!

My hope it that, having survived those first trying couple of years, Some Grace With That, and I, are ready to grow and thrive!

I’m going to be taking some time to weed through old posts, edit and update material, and plan the coming year of Some Grace With That work. I’m excited!! (And a little daunted!)

This is EXACTLY the right time to let me know if there is any theme or topic you’d like to see us explore!!

Leave a note in the comments, on the FB page, or drop me a line, if so!

THANK YOU !!  for reading, commenting, sharing, and generally encouraging me through this grand experiment!

 

 

Be well.

 

 

A bit of Monday resistance :)

Happy Monday!!!

How is everyone out there?

I don’t know about you, but I’m feeling the need for a little energy to kick off THIS week.

And, of course, I’m ALWAYS feeling a little resistant!  😀

 

 

Be well.
