Hi, I’m Liz, the person who is writing deep fragile grace.
Why deep fragile grace, you ask? Why not my name, you ask?
First, I’m a private (ish, private-ish) person, I like to still think I have some veil of privacy although I write a blog. Ha! Privacy. I’m even kidding myself some days.
Anyways, so that’s why I don’t have my whole name as a website address.
Two, I like the words deep, fragile and grace, and think they are words that describe both me and my outlook on life…and they are such beautiful words, too.
In regards to me personally, I prefer the word ‘deep’ to words, ahem, ‘too intense’.
That, and I find that my life and my faith is full of deep, fragile grace.
Deep, as in, not shallow faith or appreciation of life; deep as in that feeling that goes down into your very marrow.
Fragile, as in who I am, who you are, how the world is. One day is solid and steady, and I am sure of my place in the world, how much God loves me.
Fragile, as in it changes in a heartbeat and it seems that sometimes the world is so shaky, delicate, and balancing on a thumb tack instead of resting steadily in God’s hands.
And grace, that there is always more than enough grace from God for all of us, and all of our sins, problems, insecurities and frailties.
So, is that clear as mud?
This blog obviously has a Christian bend, and I will be honest, most of the posts will be about God, Christ, things that either anger me or delight me about Christianity, as I am a Christian and these subjects fascinate me. But don’t hold me to that exclusively, as I am also human, so writing a post about cute shoes or a funny post about cats is totally within reason.
All that to say this-enjoy.
I hope you enjoy reading as much as I enjoy writing.
Thanks for taking the time; I truly appreciate it-
