Every experience God gives you, every person He puts in your life is the preparation for the future that only He can see ~Corrie Ten Boom
Hello there! Welcome to my blog Amazed by Grace. This blog is about my life. Hmm...now that's what you usually find on a blog bio, let's see if I can come up with something different. smile. This blog is about the people, places, and things I do every day, the goals I have set, the things I find interesting, and the different ideas that go through my head. One of my life long goals has been to be a dancer (I'm a bun-head and proud of it!) and dancing is one of the things that I do every single day of my life. Besides that, I love British accents, witty quotes, good music, books, pointe shoes, historical films, 60% cocoa chocolate, watching 19 Kids and Counting, Food Network, and House Hunters International. I like a brisk walk, spending time with my grandparents, aunts and uncles, and cousins, eggplant parmasana, baking bread, decorating cakes, going to ballet, searching the shelves at the library when it's quiet and uncrowded and I get to slowly enjoy the shelves of books. I'm also a lover of coffee shops, chocolatey cappachinos, hydrangea plants, a sunny morning, the funny things my family says, the color combination of black and white, Pride and Prejudice, Emma, and Ballet Shoes, Vintage items, cool shops, theaters, organic and all natural food, cookbooks, our family KitchenAid, Ballet Magnificat!, learning, and traveling. But most importantly I want this blog to encourage you, I want you too to be amazed by Jesus's Grace. He loves you more than life and He listens when you call. You're never alone because He is here and He will wipe away your every fear. He will love you forever and no matter what happens He will carry you through it. He loves you. So the soul of my blog is the title of my favorite song Amazing Grace My Chains Are Gone.
Create in me a pure and holy passion, create in me one magnificant obsession. Create in my a pure and holy submission for my life, to know and follow hard after YOU.
Be still and know that I am God, I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted upon the earth. The Lord of Hosts is with us, the God of Jacob is our refuge. Psalm 46:19
He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep, to gain what he cannot lose." Jim Elliot
Run With Endurance the Race that is Set Before You
FAITH IS NOT BELIEVING THAT GOD CAN, ITS KNOWING THAT HE WILL
