At best, if i worked really hard, i might get a b ➕. On a test, with tutors, if i got an A, or an A ➕, it was, completely… 100% God. Because, yeah a math scholar, not my natural gift. If it was an English test, or Literature. Yes!! !!  ❤️ ~

 

 

Then, we fast forward to MANY years later…. When I meet my… Phenomenal Genius, husband. Yes, He is ✅ check..  an Aspergian Superman, by the Grace of God. He is Funny, and beyond infinitly smart. Stupidly smart, I might add. ❤️ To someone, like ME, that can bring challenges. But God… ~

 

 

 

You SEE. My blood type, is C ➕. It is Christ, ➕ the Heavenly Father and Holy Spirit. ❤️ I have Heaven, in my DNA. I am divinely made, to BE. So is my David, and WE are united, to be together, in unity, by Grace. ❤️ Beautiful. Yes. ❤️ Easy. Not always. My husband thinks, quite different 👑 than me. Yet, by God’s grace, WE can find 🔍 the same page.  ❤️

 

 

 

Today, the hot topic, was mission fields. And, we were reminded, that it is simple. Everwhere is, a field of mission. Because, everywhere needs, Love. ❤️ And that, mission begins, when WE open 👐 our eyes, each day.  ~

“We must Go “~~~ to quote Tim Hughes ” Live to feed the hungry, stand beside the broken. We must go. Stepping forward… Keep us from just singing, move us into action, WE must go. ” ~

 

 

 

A few years ago, at WMC, (Westminster Chapel) we did a project with Sarah. It was to make a piggy bank. It was a green one. Like a tourquoisy, green. I have a picture of her and me. We used glitter paints, and had a blast making it. It was to put coins in. We filled it, and gave it to the church. The purpose, for families, who needed food. I believe maybe, a food bank. ~~~

 

 

 

#beautifulmemories ❤️

 

 

 

This is what Jesus, does for US. He fills US, when we allow, Him to. My prayer that WE release the yuck, to Him. Today, WE receive the new. In Jesus name. I could use some good? How bout you?

 

 

 

We come asking, for something better. Choosing to give up, the bad. With repentant hearts. Heal us Lord. By your grace. In Jesus name. ❤️

 

 

 

In His Heart,

Child of Wonder ~ 💫💌👓💫

19693_491506860886978_1220456359_njesus loves me brightarticle-0-18F3722200000578-71_634x360Where to begin today. Well, let’s start with this? Did you ever WONDER…if YOU…are WORTHY of LOVE?!?!? Because, for whatever REASON…I have much time to WONDER. Call it reflection, call it, really whatever word you like, in kind. Smile. Because, the simple FACT is…JESUS is ALWAYS on my MIND….

 

 

And, that means ❤️  LOVE is…. YET… I have TRULY battled, with THIS question. And, NOT just for myself….either. Grace needed. And, ” A little patience please.” To quote my FAV film, from this year… “THE SHACK.”

 

 

 

The SONG on …. “When I’m back on MY FEET (Michael Bolton) again” YES…that. TEARS. Not from sorrow. BUT … JOY. It is VERY SURREAL, to LIVE this LIFE. At times, it is hard to explain. Almost constant FIRE and ICE, it seems. YET… GRACE remains. Smile . I am…a CHILD at HEART. I am HIS child of WONDER, and hers too. How bout you? What do YOU wonder about?

 

 

 

 

Do YOU wonder about SILLY things…or BIG ones? Are you dreaming BIG or SMALL? The song, now…. ” YOU WERE MY EVERYTHING.”  (Jodie Watley) And I sit before my KING…listening to HIM…sing …and I sing… we sing…together. LOVE #singingwithJESUS ❤️

 

 

 

 

Sometimes in LIFE….it FEELS like the RUG gets pulled OUT. It FEELS like YOU are DOWN, for the COUNT. YOU are at a LOSS. Total. GRace comes in. ☂ Rain  comes down. Somehow….YOU are YOU again, when THEY said, it COULD NEVER BE. His LOVE….comes through again… ❤️ ❤️ ❤️

 

 

” Do you Remember” (Phil Collins) So loved THIS song…. Sang it over many. Always with a desire, for OTHERS to HEAL. Never knowing, the depths, of WHAT would come. For ME or THEM. Tears. The NEVERENDING STORY, of Heaven’s LOVE. The gift, goes on. .. ❤️

 

 

 

 

Grace Grace. Such GRACE in THIS place. To HEAL, to imagine, to create. Grace to get it right and wrong, in the SAME breath it seems. Grace to SEE our DREAMS come true. . Because, they are HIS DREAMS too!!!!! ” Don’t know MUCh, but I know I love YOU.” (Linda Rondstadt, and Aaron Neville) Exactly that…. I sing to JESUS. The song of my HEART, is He. My heartbeat too. NOt just a word, unto me. Soooooooooooo much MORE!!!!!!

 

 

 

Jesus, IS the “ORIGINAL CHILD OF WONDER.” LOVE ❤️

 

 

 

Next song … ” I wanna TELL the WHOLE Wide World About YOU” (A’me Lorain) ~~~ ❤️ ❤️ ❤️ ❤️ ❤️ ❤️ ❤️ ❤️ ❤️ ❤️

THIS is how I FEEL about HIS LOVE!!!! I say THIS to HIM.

 

 

Picture this…

 

 

On the Bench. Rainbows  in the sky. Stars bursting ✨  ALL around. The bench is pink. It has green legs. I’m just sitting there, chatting with MY LOVE. ❤️  ANd, we are practicing singing too. There is HEALING taking place. He embraces ME. These words, with HIS eyes. His GAZE…a Mezmorize.

 

 

 

 

“HOLD ON” ~ ” TO ME….beautiful ONE. I have got YOU. and, YOU are doing so GREAT. Breathe. Rest. Recieve. Let my LOVE be YOUR waterfall. LOve ME…I will LOVE YOU. Just as WE always have. Different, but same. You know this refrain. LOve, beautiful one. Oh, how I LOVE you. Smile. lightning strikes , the ground beside me. I will fight for YOU. Be still.” ~~~ ❤️

 

 

 

 

Like a SCENE…from the  LION KING. I am in AWE and wonder again. Oh my BESTESET  friend EVER!!!!! GIves me a NEW day every day. LOVE. His ways, so WONDERFUL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! YAYA!!!!!!!Hallelujah!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ❤️

 

LOVE LIGHTS THE WAY!!!!! ❤️

In His Grace,

Strength Meter ~ ⌛️ 🕐 💞 💔 🚆

19693_491506860886978_1220456359_nil_570xN.453547725_r07x13933360_10155100327842785_752944123_nfighting-parentslarge816e6e642d8b65a15137333cbf5ed2301024_1069125859787707_7567550745995162315_n184414_10151642914512863_1045860989_n10629809_10153111053447785_7211140165111379869_n (1)Hello.  Just in case, you are NEW.  I’d like 💗 to introduce myself.  I am…. Elea Grace.  I am 42 years old.  It is VERY nice to meet you.  ❤️ Welcome to Redemption. The purpose here, is to find 🔍 some hope. My goal, for all who visit, is that something, you read 📘, can bring some healing, to you.  Because , I TRULY believe the world needs more Love. There is lots ,of pain.  And, together, when we Love on each other, that pain, gets better. Only… By God’s Grace.  😊

 

 

 

Today… I’m writing about, a tough topic, for me.  Strength.  People, are always saying, “You are Soooooooo strong. ” And my reply, ” I don’t Feel strong. ” So what is the strength meter?  What is yours?  I mean… Life throws Lots… At US.  As A kid, I’d look up… And think… ” Can’t WE catch a BREAK?! !?! ” As an adult that became a MUCH more ➕ angry. . Thought.   And EVENTUALLY… I would begin to 🎓 the critical lesson, of the IMPORTANCE of SURRENDER.

 

 

 

Oh that WORD SURRENDER ,cuts… Like a knife 🔪 for so many.  And honestly, still can for me.  But God….

 

 

 

What kind of challenges, and trials, can WE endure???

Health challenges…

Check ✅

 

 

Spouses health challenges

Healed of Many Diseases.  Just diagnosed with Aspergers, and yet, doing amazingly well.

 

 

Check ✅

Children health challenges…

 

 

Check ✅

Sarah… Healed from AML Leukemia… And yet…

Jesus still chose to take her Home.  Because, it was Time 🕐  We know this.  But does it stop the pain.  No.

 

 

 

Parental Health Challenges…

Check ✅

Both… Went Home to Jesus..

 

 

Sibling Health Challenges…

 

 

Do you see a pattern?

But God…

 

 

As the song… Oh my Soul… Comes on..

And the Lyric… “you’re not alone”

Plays ❤️

 

 

 

Life is Really tough…

And that… Is putting it mildly…

It is MEANT to Challenge US….

 

 

It is MEANT to BE an EDUCATION. I used to wonder, if I was born into, the correct family.  The right one.  It is FULL of teachers.  I mean, EVERY single 🌹 GEnErAtion has at least, 1 or more.  Usually many… Teachers. And so, I didn’t want to. I was pretty much, kinda hell beant against it. And I rebelled against it, for a VERY long time. Until one day, I remembered something. My precious Mama Sarah, who gave birth to me, said to me, “Katy, You teach in everything you do.  Your Life is your testimony. ” I will NEVER forget those words. In so many ways, they sort of, haunted me, for a while….

 

 

 

But, now. They truly, strengthen me. What is my strength?  Love. What is that name? Jesus. I’m not trying to convince others. I’m just telling you, I’ve been in really dark places.  He is the only rescue.  Period.  And, did I find out, the hard way.  But God.~~~

 

 

 

Last night. On the three year anniversary ,of my heart 💞 stopping for five 🕠 minutes ,we opened up, our sweet butterfly 👐 👼 angel’s ashes for the very, first time.  What I felt… Peace.  We had the tools.  There was quiet music, in the background.  Interesting to me, my husband, chose to sprinkle a bit, over a plant in the yard, that was dying.

 

 

 

I believe in New Life. I believe in New Growth. These ashes are about love, life, and so much more.  It was time, to do this.  We both knew it.  And, somehow, WE had the strength, and tools needed.  Did it feel good?  Well… It felt right.  We always said, “She’s His first and ours… Second. ” We truly never dreamed, we would be tested ,on that. Yet somewhere WE probably knew…

 

 

 

There’s another song…

“One boy… One girl.. 2 hearts beating wildly, to put it mildly, it was Love at first Sight.  He smiled She smiled.  They knew right away.  This was a love they had waited for all their lives.  And for a moment, the whole world, revolved, around one boy, and one girl.  ” ( Colin Raye)

 

 

 

We want to Thank Everyone… For ALL the LOVE and Support ❤️

It REALLY matters to US…

We have REALLY felt it…

We know WE are not perfect… And have definitely been VERY emotional. Please Forgive US, for ANY offenses that may have occurred… Known or Unknown.  We LOVE you ALL, so MUCH.  And,  WE so desire, the mending of Fences, with the Love, and compassion and understanding. ❤️

Faith.. Hope.. And Love… 🔑 🔑 🔑

 

 

 

The Greatest of these… Love… ❤️ ❤️ ❤️ ❤️ ❤️

 

In His Grace,

The JESUS show 📺 ❤️ 😇 💐🐛

happily-ever-after-wood-printjesus-in-heaven-jesus-26448207-480-38312166887_10207993635856946_547456957_n29caf0651dd94f57758d9befcb449fc810527370_10152605851838879_2057460581450348634_n12933147_1006662052755725_309458154322036022_n184414_10151642914512863_1045860989_nEvery single day, I spend with Jesus.  I spend it, with His loving hand, guiding me.  Because, of this, I am so honored to have, a Heavenly Father. Plus, a truly wonderous Holy Spirit too.  There is NOTHING like, or better than, the Family of God.  ❤️

My favorite place, to sit with Jesus is… The Garden.  ~~~

 

Picture this : A 12 year  ~ old me, with my hair in ponytail.  I’ve been outside playing, climbing trees and jumping rope.  My body is tired, but resilent,  as most children ‍‍‍ are.  My clothes are dirty and grungy. And I walk in, to His garden.  I’m feeling like, I really should have, come under the waterfall.  You know, to clean off.

Then… I SEE Jesus.  And suddenly , EVERYTHING is CLEAR, and CLEAN.  I look down at my clothes.  Suddenly, I have this, beautiful dress on.  And, my old clothes are, being washed by “local angels. ”  I’m in AWE as, I see NEW clothes.

It’s like a scene, from Cinderella. You know the one, where the fairy godmother, gives HER New clothes.  But, the difference is, the NEW clothes Jesus gives, STICK.  So as I feel my hair, drawn up in this beautiful bun, like a ballerina.  I realize it’s TIME 4 Jesus Talk.  ❤️

Miraculously , I can hear Jesus.  Not just in quiet, but in noise too.  Because, the world gets quite ramboncious. I sit down, next to Jesus.  As He motions for me, and pats his hand on the bench.  Hmmm the bench.  I’m feeling a few nerves inside, like butterflies.

Without words, being spoken.  Jesus just looked my direction ↘️, and my clothes changed.  I got a NEW outfit, just from a glance.  The power in His eyes.  The LOVE ❤️ that resides there. ~~~

 

 

He begins to say,

“I know you’re feeling MANY emotions.  But, remember that surrender is KEY.  Rest dearone. Choose to wait but not, be weighted down, by the challenges around you. My Love is bursting through, EVERY barrier.  Remember , that I will NOT fail, you or ANY of my children.  You will NOT be dropped.  You are a treasure, unto ME.  You matter.  I’ve chosen you.  I call you by NAME. You are MINE. Choosing MY path, in FULL is a process.  You are doing well, and I see, every detail.  I hold your heart.  It is united with mine.  I am bringing healing, restoration and Freedom.  Receive, my beautiful one.  ”

 

I sit before my King.  I touch my crown.    I feel the rainbow sparkles, and it strengthens me.  His promises.  I cry, yet my Heavenly makeup does not smudge.  He holds me.  He reaches out, a jar to catch my tears.  He smiles….  ❤️

 

He looks up at me, after gently tilting my face towards Him.  And, then He takes a DEEP breath.  He blows, tenderly in my face.  And says,  “Refreshment, my beautiful. ” ❤️

 

He continues to say, “I have made promises, and I will keep them.  Because, I Love ❤️ you.  You will NOT ,mess this up, my beloved.  ”

I start to hand Him, my crown.  And He says, “No precious.  The crown must stay.  There is a beauty, for the ashes ⚱ coming forth.  Humility. The sparkle and ✨ shine, of MY Love. You are worthy, simply because I, say so.  I, the Lord have Spoken.  ”

 

I’m so Lovestruck, by every ounce, of His heart.

Today, the story changed a bit.  Yet, to He who holds, EVERY chapter, it is, THE SAME.  ~~~

 

Grace Grace… Unto princess Elea, from my King.  As He prepares me for a NEW birthday.   ~~~

 

My God shall supply ALL our needs.  Mine, Yours and ALL of ours, who belong to the King.  Thank you Jesus, Heavenly Father and Holy Spirit.  You are Love. ❤️ Through you, WE are LOVE.  Thank you for healing hearts, minds, and bodies.  Only YOU can. We come with repentant hearts, receiving.  With JOY, we celebrate you.  ❤️ ❤️ ❤️

 

In Jesus Love,

~E ~
