BEHIND THE NAME

Definition of Graced

unmerited or undeserved favour‘ God gives us unconditional love – despite all we do to Him or to each other. My life is sometimes messy, my heart can even get ugly at times. Even still, my life is overflowing with God’s daily undeserving sufficient grace. Some days we just need reminded of the eternal worth and significance of our everyday lives. Our lives are lavishly graced with God’s grace — a free gift that can be passed on and mirrored to others as we live out our grace laden lives.

 In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of His grace which He lavished on us. In all wisdom and insight,  He made known to us the mystery of His will, according to His kind intention which He purposed in Him. {Eph. 1:7-9}

But as you abound in everything—in faith, in speech, in knowledge, in all diligence, and in your love for us—see that you abound in this grace also. {2 Cor. 8:7}

Definition of Simplicity

the state of being simple, uncomplicated, unmixed, alertness of mind To be simple is to be single-minded, to have one aim and no selfish ambition. Simplicity is also another word for “pure devotion.”

For our boasting is this: the testimony of our conscience that we conducted ourselves in the world in simplicity and Godly sincerity, not with fleshly wisdom but by the grace of God, and more abundantly toward you. {2 Cor. 1:12}

Bondservants, obey in all things your masters according to the flesh, not with eye service, as men-pleasers, but in sincerity of heart, fearing God. {Col 3:22}

DEDICATIONS


To my Lord and Savior – His blessings are endless and so undeserving. Thank you, for dying and giving me a new life with meaning. Thank you, for your unfailing, unwavering, daily sufficient amazing grace.

To my husband – thanks for being my best friend for always, for making my life sweeter, and always bringing a smile to my life. Thank you, for holding me together when times get rough, supporting me, leading me and encouraging me to keep sharing all the words that pile up inside, I love you.


To my Munchkins – you’ve taught me what perseverance really is, your smiles and daily
hugs are enough to make all the rough days SO worth it! I’ve learned so much being your mom, and I wouldn’t trade a moment. I pray these pages will be an encouragement in your walk with the Lord one day. Mommy loves
you.

In honor Becca – {Jun. 11 1984 – Feb. 1, 2013} who is now with Jesus. Her sudden death impacted my life greatly. I chose to launch this new blog in honor of her short life as a wife, mom, daughter, and precious friend. Her death reminded me once again that life is fleeting and must be cherished each and everyday as if it was our last. Becca, your death has inspired me to live more fully, and more focused on eternity than ever before. I miss you, see you again someday soon!

To my readers – your dedication amazes me, your testimonies and notes of encouragement have deeply touched my heart, and have inspired me to keep writing, and sharing bits and pieces of life with you. Thanks for reading.
