It’s wonderful - God’s grace is exceptionally, undoubtedly, incredibly, tremendously the best gift of all!
For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith--and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God--not by works, so that no one can boast.
Ephesians 2:8-9 NIV
Who has saved us and called us to a holy life--not because of anything we have done but because of His own purpose and grace. This grace was given us in Christ Jesus before the beginning of time,
2 Timothy 1:9 NIV

When I’m at home, I have to raise the blinds. The slider door to the deck must be wide open. I have to be able to see outside, no matter if it’s rain or dry or snow or sun or ice or hot, I just have to see out there. I have to watch, I have to know what’s going on out there, out in my backyard.
It’s hard to explain, but I’ll reach a certain point and absolutely have...
to go outside, to be outside, to relax outside, to dream outside, to explore outside, to cry outside, to sit outside, to live outside, to remember outside, to sing outside, to wait outside, to enjoy outside, to feel outside, to laugh outside, to hope outside, to play outside, to work outside, to smile outside, to think outside, to hum outside, to ponder outside, to pray outside...
(I'm going outside now. More later.)

There have been times I’ve been accused of being ‘persnickety’. Exactly how does that define me, ‘I ask’? If you do ask me, in my opinion, there are way too many adjectives and synonyms that define persnickety. Not all of them would pertain to me. Yet, will they in fact show I'm persnickety? Hmmm...
Let’s begin: (a tiny, tiny list) fussy, choosy, finicky, picky, nit-picking, choosy, trivial, opinionated,
demanding, critical, onerous ( I’ve always liked the word ‘onerous’), fussbudget (this word also), scrupulous, difficult, particular, snobbish, particular about how things look...
That doesn’t sound very good for me, does it? Hmmm... Yep, needs improvement. I’ll work on that...
