My first post! I am amazed I have gotten this far. I have been threatening to do this for a very, very long time. I have been prompted, prodded, reminded, and mentally pushed to do this and have finally taken the plunge. I have procrastinated, argued, and come up with every possible reason to not do this. And yet, here I am…….going live!
The question? What is the question that drives this whole blogging thing? At this point I will admit I’m not sure. I know that I will post what I am prompted to post and we’ll see how it shakes out.
A bit of background……..I am 58 years old and started my esoteric inquisitiveness when I was very young; catholic school to be exact. I cannot tell you how many punishments I endured writing ‘I will not……’ a hundred times or more on the steps while everyone else was at recess having fun. I just didn’t believe everything I was told and had this insatiable need to know WHY (still do, a little). I am still on a path of finding myself looking for God everywhere in everything. The question that drove me in my 30’s and 40’s was what or who is God, really? I know what religion said God was but it just didn’t gel with me. So, I wandered down a path looking under every ‘rock’, in every book, and every metaphysical store to try to find the answer. In the mean time I was building myself a multimillion dollar business and unconsciously working toward losing it, but then that was all part of the plan. Now I see that. I see how everything I’ve done, every decision I’ve made, and every thought I have had has brought me to NOW. I didn’t plan most of my life and it happened anyway exactly as it should and exactly when it was and is supposed to. No matter what I did, what I know, or how hard I try, I will end up being, doing, and having exactly what I’m supposed to. There are no accidents or mistakes. God is on purpose and only 100% of the time!
So, why am I doing this blog? To assist….to serve. I am doing this because it may help someone with something at some point and I may just learn a thing or to from you! I am doing this because I have been asked to and I feel that the more we share the more we love.
I have named my Blog and my FB Michell’s Grace because that is what I feel I have been given when I have asked for help. I feel that Grace is a gift from Spirit that has carried me through some things that nothing else can. I also feel Grace is a by product of good intention. Grace is what has brought me out ‘gracefully’ on the other side of an issue or event. Grace is what we pray for when we ask for help. Here is one of the the dictionary’s listings for the meaning of grace:
I hope you find something of value within this blog and the postings to come!
