Life: Our Grace Period

I was privileged to participate in the youth lesson at church yesterday. The topic was Grace. Something, I have to admit, I seldom think about.
The teacher asked the class what Grace was. One of the girls said that when she thought of Grace, she thought of the term "grace period". She continued to explain that a grace period was extra time to study for a test, or more time allowed to finish something unfinished.
I thought this comparison was brilliant!
Isn't this life a grace period, where we are allowed to come to earth and be tested?
God was gracious enough to give us this opportunity to experience mortality and test the waters of our conscience. Thanks to His grace we are redeemed when we fall out of grace. Through His graceful sacrifice we can hope to live again.
The Spanish word gracias  and gratis comes from the Latin root word gratus. These words mean thank you and free.
His grace most certainly frees us and I for one, am most grateful. Cool Pin!

Endless Trailer

Check out the ENDLESS trailer. I've been kind of slow getting it out there, but at last, here it is! I wanted this trailer to symbolize the last moments of death. As you see the light at the end of the tunnel and then...

Moving On

ENDLESS is out and doing well. It's so nice to hear that it's being well received! I really should send some copies out to reviewers, but I'm finding myself lazy. Oh well... I'll get to it, I'm sure like I'll get to my Homeschool room closet, or my own closet for that matter. I guess I'd rather Pin ideas about getting organized than actually doing the organizing.

I did do one productive thing last night! And that was giving my Blog a new look! There was nothing wrong with my old one, but I guess that part of the reason why I find it hard to write is because my life is three dimensional. Writing is just one aspect of my life, one that actually just takes bout two hours of my day! The rest of my time is filled with cooking, cleaning, homeschooling, working out, homesteading and (as of late) crocheting! So I thought that this new look would be more fitting to the many different aspects of my life.

So, I hope you enjoy my blog's new look, as I enjoy my current view from my computer: The turkeys, the new lambs and the sunlight that filters through the rafters of my back porch! What a beautiful sight!
