Hello Grace

Deep thoughts...

without shame

guilt is feeling bad about something you've done
shame is feeling bad about who you are
(my summary)

that really made sense to me.
along with shame comes a lot of unnamed fears.
and it paralyzes me.

and the truth of the whole situation is that Jesus 
has come to set me free from all of that.

shame. fear. pride.
all mixed together.

I can't live this abundant life that God wants for me
I can't have Christ living in me, the hope of glory
and also live in shame and fear.
I have to choose fear or choose courage.
Choose to live in the shadows or choose to shine.
without apology

Jesus offers me life,
but I can't step into it if I'm wading in raw sewage.
I still have to choose to step out of the cess pool of shame and self
and into His grace. His light. His truth.


What we're saying hello to this week:


New scripture art!
I'm so excited to finish this series & show you.

Hours and hours and hours of scooter riding.
He is so proud of himself.

My new favorite drink:
sparkling water with lime

Scooter/dance party in the garage with daddy's DJ lights

Lots of mess making on the kitchen table for me = art

Chuck E. Cheese on a rainy day.

My always-favorite go-to dinner
with brown rice, red pepper, and chicken.

Jack is taking his little brother for a ride in the jeep.

More art making.
He has to be in the middle of it all.
"I need paint, momma!"

So true.

Cookie eating.
Definitely his momma's boy.

Our new favorite family movie.

If you're a big nerd like me & love documentaries,
netflix streaming will be your best friend.

Happy Monday, friends.
