Why Leaves of Grace?
For book authors, leaves are the off-shoot of days and nights of incessant banging on the keyboard, unmindful of discomforts, or scribbling on any surface, and transforming images and thoughts into concrete words—so they may be shared with those who equally love the printed page.
Every letter, space, and punctuation mark that come together in cohesive paragraphs, will eventually find their way into a book leaf . . . and then, leaves.
It's a process I fell in love with years ago, and which I continue to enjoy. This love and joy of writing can only come from the One without Whose grace nothing is or will ever be.
In like manner, nature's wonders, mostly in all shades of green—and also called leaves—sprout from the ground or hang from twigs and stems to remind us of this grace.
As the world totters between printed and cyber pages in this digital age, I thought I'd join the adventure. I'll turn my computer screen into e-leaves that you may flip (or click) through. This blogsite, from today, will log the seemingly small, ordinary things that demonstrate how the Author of life bestows unceasing grace even upon an insignificant, inconsequential, and ordinary mortal like me.
It is my hope that you find many things in your own life to reflect on, and acknowledge, with gratitude, the Source of them all.
