guts grace GLORY
The three Gs. 😬
guts: Some days I am guttural…and I will share with you from the guts of my soul. This isn’t always pretty, but I promise to be real, and raw, and me. I have yet to successfully master being me, so I sure don’t have the energy to try and be someone else. And, you might just bust a gut laughing at some of the situations I find myself in. I have a knack for landing myself smack dab in the middle of craziness. True story!
grace: At other times, I hope to be graceful. I was given some good but tough advice in the wee hours the morning after Rhett was killed. I was told to be as elegant as possible. Whew! That was a challenge, but God gave me grace, and I did the best I could the next few days while writing an obituary, standing through a marathon visitation and viewing the body of my precious son on what happened to be my 45th birthday, and laying him to rest on New Year’s Eve. I wasn’t actually elegant, but I wasn’t a complete train wreck either. Some of my behavior was based on shock, but I mostly attribute the fact that I survived that week on the unmerited grace of God. Goodness GRACIOUS, I’d be so lost without his grace. I need it daily!
GLORY: I am rarely, if ever, glorious…but you should see my God! He is full of glory. His ways are glorious, His love is glorious, and His plan is glorious, even when I cannot make a bit of sense out of it! I hope to use my words and His words and the words of others to celebrate HIS glory.
I hope you will be blessed and challenged by this G3 experience!
