What’s in a Name?

Before creating this account I knew I would have to come up with a blog name. Last night Unfurling Grace presented itself.  Many of my journal writings, which will be shared through this medium will all evolve, via this phrase—Unfurling Grace.

So it’s starts, or just continues maybe?  Like an evolution or spiral.  I’m now online with my thoughts.  Yikes!

I like Unfurling, rather than unfolding.  I contemplated the words for a while.  Unfold is to open or reveal from a folded or hidden position.  Unfurling is to open or unroll, like a spiral, in order to be open to ‘accept’ the wind or weather.

Grace, is a favor or blessing.  The meaning is different for each religion.  It can be the key to release us from sin or the bondage of past lifetimes.  Or maybe it’s just this lifetime? It is this gift, from within, that we receive every time we do nothing,  just surrender and  accept.  Looking back, on the last few years, I think I was physically tackled and emotional clobbered by Grace, a battle royale.  I lost, to win.

Unfurling Grace. Wow!  Setting sail in all-weather; unrolling to experience acceptance through surrender.  Tough one for this A-Type-bossy boots-on the safe side-know it all-clipboard carrying-list maker.  Thanks everyone, you know who you are– for the support over the years and for my most recent surprises.

  2. Thank you Rita. I am realizing that Facebook and WordPress will be connections and re-connections to family and friends. As much as I fought the virtual world, I think It will be great portal to reconnect.

Reading your words, listening to your heart, your thoughts, your journey touches my heart, my thoughts and helps give voice to some of my own battles. Thank you for the courage to write them down to share.
