Thank God It's Good n' F*cked-Up Friday at The FF Word!
Want to know why this Friday is F*cked-Up and why I'm thanking God for it? Clickity-click here. Not there!....Here. (That was for you, Amanda.)
I'm not supposed to be here on the blog today but this could not wait to be posted and offered to my absolutely extraordinary Lovelies who have bestowed upon this humbled girl a multitude of impassioned gifts the past 24 hours, not the least of which are your words. Beautiful, lush, supportive, wise, feverishly enduring words. How can I thank you properly? Only God could do you justice.
I thank you God for your people. Do something really nice for them. On me.
And most importantly the Good part. I thank you God for committing the greatest act of love known to mankind ~ To sacrifice your Son, Jesus Christ, in such an agonizing, torturous manner for the sake of saving your children from themselves, for an eternity with You, the best guy EVER. To forgive us our sinful, flawed, wasted natures that we may be loved despite ourselves. For you so loved your babies that you gave us the gift of You incarnate, that we could find comfort in the knowledge that your own holy experience, embodied in human flesh and human weakness, would bring You closer to us, and us to You. That You get it. You get us. "For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life." John 3:16 That will never get old.
I only have one more piece of gratitude to share and then I'm outta here. That is to Tanya Keenan. Ms. Keenan sent me an email last night after reading Shards of Glass in support of my 'situation'. A simple, elegant email (from an elegant woman) with only eight words and an attachment that changed the course, of not only my night, but my heart of glass. May it inspire you with the same peaceful delight as it has me:
"I love you and this is for you..." ~ Ms Tanya Keenan
I thank you God for this.
Your humble servant (Dear sweet Jesus, forgive me that last bit),
