GRACE: An Amazing Gift

Grace is not something we "earn" because of our faith, any thing that we do or don't do or our beliefs. Grace is simply a gift that our Creator showers us with

Grace gifts include: Favor, Blessings, Strength, Protection, Provision, Salvation

Ephesians 2:8 (NLT) God saved [us] by his grace when [we] believed. And [we] can't take credit for this; it is a gift from God.

This is Amazing Grace

God Bless you Friends, and May....

The Lord bless you, and keep you;

The Lord make His face shine on you,

And be gracious to you;
The Lord lift up His countenance on you,

And give you peace.’

Numbers 6:24-26

I Met a Fellow Blogger!

Hi Friends! How are you treating 2016 so far? Hope you are working intentionally towards your dreams/goals.

So, guess what?!  I had the great privilege of meeting a fellow blogger recently.  I always hoped I would, and the opportunity presented itself.  I follow/read a few marriage related blogs as I aspire to be a wife in this lifetime.  One of such blogs is  Intentional Today written by Ngina; Ngina is originally from Kenya,  she is an "early wed" wife and Christian blogger who writes passionately about all things marriage. 

Well, at the end of  this particular post Ngina says " I want to meet you...." and she further indicated that she lives in Maryland!  So of course, I responded  that I would love to meet her and that I also live in Maryland.  After several off line exchanges, we discovered that we live in the same region just a county over from each other and we set a date to meet a Panera.

Not sure if I should share that on the evening of our meet up, I fell asleep and was late but thankfully not horribly late!

Ngina was so gracious and patient.  We had such comfortable conversation getting to know each other, general chit/chat.... took some selfies that I was hoping to post here but having issues.

Ngina was so kind and brought a gift for me!  She gave me a copy of her latest book Blues to Bliss

I've started reading the book and will give a full review once I've completed it.  It was such a pleasure and joy meeting a fellow blogger.  We promised each other that we would meet up again once the weather breaks.  By the way, the very next day after our meet up was the epic snow storm we experienced on the east cost.

If you are married or looking forward to marriage check out Ngina's blog Intentional Today.  Lots of wisdom nuggets for growth and enlightenment shared from personal experiences.
