Too much too soon?

Blogging is the new wheat crackers. And for those of you that know me, I really love wheat crackers. So now, I have this blog to be obsessed about. I consider myself an "all or nothing" type of person, so when I started this blog, I immediately wanted to make 5 posts in one day, but in an attempt to appear cool, suave, and nonchalant, I stuck with only one, and just made it 5 posts long.

So last night I layed in bed thinking about my blog (so much for cool, suave, and nonchalant). Too many cups of coffee and too much sleep the night before kept me alert until the wee hours of the morning with thoughts such as "What should I call my blog? What should I blog about next? How do I get my blog to look as cool as other peoples? Maybe all my friends will start blogging!" My first idea for a title was something punny with the word "burd/bird". But I really don't like birds. If I did; however, the title would be "The Burd Feed". But I just really don't like birds.

Finally I pulled out my Bible and flipped an attempt to find a catchy phrase that could serve as the title. I don't think the Bible was written with the intent of being made into blog titles, so I went with an overall idea instead. That's where I decided on glimpses of grace. Stephanie noted that it would be cooler if my name were Grace, but alas, I am still Caroline. And since "Creeping on Caroline" didn't really ensure many followers, I ditched the puns and play on names.

Glimpses of grace. Is that biblical? Are we only getting glimpses of grace while on earth? I think so. Like the verse in 1 Corinthians 13 says, "Now I know in part, then I shall know in full, even as I am fully known" Life with Christ is grace in and of itself, and I cannot even begin to grasp the fullness of His grace, or the amount that He fully knows me and fully loves me. That blows my mind. Even I get annoyed with myself the more I get to know me. So,  I'm excited to keep living day by day with Christ while trusting Him to continually show me glimpses of His grace.

And excited to blog about it...duh.

  1. Caroline, I love how real you are ALL THE TIME. The only way to improve this blog is to include a live video stream so we can watch you make your bird motions.

    Seriouly, though-it is so easy for me to worry about what other people think of me, and I truly respect how comfortable you are in your own skin.

    Keep getting glimpses of grace so I can read your blog! and stalk you more and more and more

    Hope that was a worthy comment!
