I know it's not exactly new year, but it's close. And it's definitely new to me!
Hi. Kari Grace here. Brand new to blogging, and learning as I go. so perhaps an introduction is a good start.
This has taken guts. So if you are offended by my ramblings, or even disagree with what I share, you are free to do that. Just please donít post hate comments, or send me mean emails. You have the right to your opinions, and I respect that. But so do I. You share yours on your page, and I'll share mine on mine. I never was any good at being politically correct. Are you OK with that?
That being said, there is so much more to me than a beautiful pen. I love life, and have a plethora of interests and hobbies. I love trying new things, and learning every day. A mind is a terrible thing to waste, and I enjoy expanding my cranium. Itís really the only place a gal wants wrinkles.
Been in north carolina over twenty years but I originally hail from the other side of the pond, which goes a long way to explaining why I talk funny and often spell funny too.
First thing you may need to know if you're interested in anything i may pen is that i'm passionate about my God and my faith. I love all people of all religions but like mother teresa, I'm partial to my own. My convictions run deep; the Lover of my soul gave me worth when I had none, and I am nothing without Him. My faith defines me. I'm also five foot three, forty-something and feisty. Just so you know.
I love a great many things: writing, health, and quotes that really make you think. Here are a few of my faves, in case you happen to like quotes too:
frank peretti: He is ordering my life, and doing all things well
tony dungy: there are two kinds of men in the world - those who are humble, and those who are about to be
victor frankly: we can endure any what, as long as we have a why (he should know; he's a holocaust survivor and lived thru unspeakable horrors)
I like my blue eyes, and I'm finally ok with my crazy curly red hair. I care more about the inside than the outside. Dorothy Parker said once that beauty is skin deep but ugly goes clear to the bone. Couldn't agree more.
I love life, and horses, as well as music, from bach to jazz; I've even been known to play the flute on occasion. My fave singers are Vicci Beeching - she's English too, btw - and Anthony Evans. He wrote a song called I choose Now. Mmmm. Words to live by. And i really, really love to read. The Last Lecture by Randy Pausch is one I highly recommend. Small, but insightful. And you HAVE to read what happened to him after his wedding...
I'd love to make some new friends here and start a SparkFamily so please feel free to write me, and may God bless you richly in all you put your hand to.
