ORIGINAL POST

Pushing Forward with Grace was inspired through a friend of mine.  This friend challengedinvited, encouraged me to join her in what she blogged about here.

365 days of blogging my thoughts and views whether boring or exciting. I am intrigued and petrified at the same time!

I am happy to have a place to share my thoughts and views.   An outlet to share things that I didn’t think “fit” in my other blog.  See, I also blog over at In Between the Sunsets of Life.  You can check it out and see what it is all about when you  finish here!  Basically I wanted a blog for myself to grow in my thinking, make connections, and practice writing.  I’m not sure what lies ahead, but I’m looking forward to it just the same!

The name –  Pushing Forward with Grace.  I’m moving forward, not staying in yesterday, and I want to strive to do it as graceful as possible.  I’m a daughter that has been offered grace through faith, not of my own doing.  My Father offers this to me daily.  It’s a gift.  So when the pushing forward gets tough, I will turn to the ONE that is the ultimate example of what grace is.

  1. I’m really glad I came today! So nice to meet you!

    I am a fellow Lutheran, adn I also took the long way “home” (Catholic, evangelical free, Baptist, United Bretheran…Anglican a little, now, finally and forever justified by grace alone through faith alone…and fed by God’s Word alone in my Lutheran chuch!)

    I look forward to exploring your blog more!
