Why Glitter and Grace?
Glitter is about as accurate of a word as I can find to describe myself and the things I like. Glitter nail polish, surprise parties, diamonds, high heels, tiaras, party dresses, city skylines – all have glitter in some form or another. I’m girly, child-like, easily distracted by shiny objects and love things that get people’s attention.
Grace. Much more so than glitter, I am defined by the word Grace. “For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith – and this not from yourselves – it is the gift of God.” (Ephesians 2:8). I may love to admire expensive clothes and pretty houses and big diamonds, but I know there is more to life than material things, and as I go through life appreciating all the glitter that God has given for me to enjoy, I hope I learn more of His grace every day.
May we live lives that are sprinkled with glitter and filled with grace!
