Why giants, grace and geoducks? Weird, right? Giants were an obvious for me. There are so many giants in just everyday living. Relationships that turn on us, finances that consumes us, lost dreams that elude us, trust broken and words that taunt us. Geoducks (pronounced gooey ducks), yes they are real, check them out. Geoducks are large clams native to the Pacific Northwest. They grow to an impressive size and have some characteristics that are quite like some human behavior. I will share my thoughts on that one a bit later.
I put grace in the middle of the title of this blog because it is really God's grace that embraces us and leads us to the place of peace, hope and love. This is what gets us victory over giants.
My purpose of this blog is to write and share some of my own thoughts, struggles and victories as I navigate through this amazing journey called life. I am hoping that you will feel free to share some of your own thoughts and adventures. After all it is in the sharing that we connect with each other and learn from sharing hope and grace. This sharing is not meant to judge or preach, just a place where we can share thoughts in a safe and conversational venue. This is my introduction. I have to think about how I am going to begin this conversation with you as putting myself out here for all the world to see is a bit scary. But this fear is my giant, I am being challenged to come out of my safe geoduck shell and step into grace as I am encouraging you to do as well. Tomorrow I will begin. I'm off to pray about this.
