This past week has been about changes taking place, being grateful about the lessons learned, and the many experiences that I've had this past year. It's funny how life can hand you all sorts of twists not knowing what's around the corner, but expecting yourself to 'be ready' when things do change.

I have been filled up with grace for the past few days and it's an absolutely great feeling. (Ironically, when I went to church, the sermon was about grace!)

Grace is undeserved favor. I think we're all in need of some grace every now and then!

Grace apprehended always brings us life changes - it helps us to live in freedom and to live in gratitude.

Grace equals gratitude. It's so simple!

I'm grateful for the seasons of change, the people that come and go in my life, and the emotions and feelings that can get caught up in it all. As much as I admittedly hate change, sometimes I need to embrace it and work through those tough areas to get to the desired outcome.

I honestly feel 'free' again... I'm hoping to be able to get back to where I was in life when I moved west over a year ago. Finally rid myself of these ugly insecurities that decide to surface at the most inopportune times. Learn to be content and not take everybody's opinions straight to heart. Welcome future changes... the list could go on and on...

I am so very blessed and grateful for the friends and family that I have in my life - thank you for your words of encouragement and endless love this past week! I couldn't have asked for better peeps to be in my life :)

Of course you are blessed with the family you have been issued at birth, you got me as an uncle and what more could anyone ever ask for? Each time I view Corn2Cali I am amazed at the way you can write and the things you write, not to say I didn't think you could do it but the things you write are so ..heartfelt?? Your tribute to Kate was beautiful, your love for your mother comes out in words far more than anything I ever said to your Grandma but God knows I did love her, you are just making sure she knows it while she is here, a mistake I hate to have made...honestly.And now this one, how do you do it? Looking forward to the next one you write so I can be in AWE again. Love Kev
