I’ve gone silent on here for so long, and I think it’s because, well…for multiple reasons.
Partly because life slapped me up side the head and hollered “ha HA” and then ran off with a taunting, haunting laugh, chiding me to keep up. And I haven’t kept up. I’m okay with that, because “keeping up” hasn’t been the point—each day has come and gone, and there has been grace for it. God’s grace, immeasurable and boundless. God’s mercies, afresh for each day.
And partly because I don’t take social media lightly. I want to harness even this little space for the glory of God. And I want to love well in and through it. I want to love God well in and through it, and I want to love YOU well. I refuse to maintain something that is merely and solely about me.
So. For starters, I want to get to know you. I want us to know each other. Truly. 🌿 I’ll start:
I’m Grace and I’m…in the near-ish vicinity of my late-20s (this is me being in denial that I’m not in my 20s anymore….). I’m a bit of an awkward person, but I try to not make this into a social issue by acknowledging that I KNOW I’m awkward. That way no one has to wonder—I just stick it out on the table and let it be a topic of discussion. 😉 I grew up wading in the waters of the Puget sound and basking in the shadows of the Mt. Rainier and Mt. Baker. I now live in Colorado at the foot of the Rocky Mountains, and while my soul misses the ocean deeply, I’m so thankful I can see mountains from my house. You’ll hear me reference my sickness(es) sometimes—I have pretty debilitating health issues and they affect big aspects of my life. I don’t like it to be the main theme of my life, but it’s something I deal with daily. It’s also something I try to find the humor in, so don’t feel bad if you end up laughing about it when talking with me—I laugh about it, too. 😉
Now tell me about you? 🌿 Or ask me a question about anything, tell me something you’ve been wanting to tell someone and haven’t yet found a listening ear (DM me if that’s more comfortable!), tell a memory about you and I. Anything. I’d just like to have a cozy conversation as if we were having coffee together with a drizzly rain outside. 💜🌿 at Windsor, Colorado
