It was this:
And this necklace means so much to me, of course because it is a gift from The Man, but also because of the three words on it "By Grace Alone". It is handmade by Lisa Leonard and I came to know of it through the amazing (in)courage blog - If you haven't been, go, and you'll be so glad you did.
By the grace of God, I am what I am.
~I Corinthians 15:10
By Grace Alone...
I persevered through a rough year.
I am learning to be comfortable in my own skin.
I learned to be quiet and listen to God.
I learned that courage doesn't always roar, sometimes it whispers.
I am, what I am.
