Bloom in Grace

Bloom in Grace

"Every time a flower blossoms,
God demonstrates His grace."

- Marianne Williamson

I notice that I am most at home in Grace. To me the simplicity, comfort and courtesy of grace is like a soft rain falling on a parched field... "choose grace" is the best whisper of direction I ever receive when I harbor indecision or discontent (whenever I have chosen other pathways that have more to do with fear I have simply found disappointment - and I do not feel at home). Life is often so complex and stiff, in response I choose the comfort and pure bloom of Grace...

Choosing grace, such an inspiration Karen. I often choose fear and always regret it, reading your words is definitively going to help me from now on. Thank you much, Karen

Karen,
What a lovely flower and beautiful words. I forget about grace sometimes--fear takes over--how will I do what I need to do. Will God be with me and sustain me. Grace is our way to overcome that fear. I pray for all of us a day of grace and renewal in God's loving hands.

About Me

My photo
I have always been inspired by my Grandfather's particular generosity and encouragement, along with his love for others and nature. His spirit lives on, and the influence is quietly with me as I write and share. This is my small offering that I pray will bless others and allow them to become Simply Inspired. warmly, karen -xok.
Each day provides its own gifts.
