The story of Pink Grace.

About nineteen years ago I found myself in a dark place. It was a place of rest yet I was so very tired. You were watched - every meal was noted - what you did or did not eat. You see not eating was a sign of depression.

Still it was in this place that God began to reveal my need for Him. I know God was there my entire life - but it was in this place that I finally started to pay attention. Through my distorted view learned in Catholic and Lutheran churches growing up, college philosophy and feminist classes, I began my journey to know Him.

At that time, I went from wondering why I had to pray to saints, to why I couldn't go directly to God, to I don't get this whole Jesus thing, to was God a woman and then the hey, wait a minute - maybe there is no God...

Still through all that muddled thinking He showed up in a book of prayers and a pair of pink, beaded socks.

The details are here: a.r. 1

Years later I came upon someone who needed to be reminded of love, generosity and grace. I remembered what it was like to receive those pink socks that I had admired - given to me freely. At first I didn't know what to make so I actually drew the socks then I scanned the socks - nothing looked right. Then I painted a little angelic type figure and made it pink. I sent it to the person. I sent one to someone else and then to another. I decided Pink Grace would always be free - a gift.

The definition of Grace: The unmerited favor from God. Now God's grace is so much bigger, better and awesome than this little painting could ever think of being. It says in Ephesians 2:8 For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God...What an awesome gift.
