I’ve only been to Memphis once, and I’ve never been to that Graceland. So this blog isn’t about Elvis or Memphis; it’s not even about Paul Simon and going to Graceland. It’s about life. Messy, stumbling along, clumsy life.
You see, I’m learning to live my life in GraceLand. GraceLand, as opposed to PerformanceLand. I’m learning that sometimes I do make a real mess of things. I trip myself up and fall down big-time. But I’m learning to fall into the grace of God.
And because I’m learning how to fall into that sweet, generous, abundant grace, I’m learning to generously give grace to others when they make a mess of things.
Tell me, who are you? Do you like Elvis? Paul Simon? Memphis? Do you know the frustration of living in PerformanceLand? And are you, like me, exhausted from all that?
I don’t know what brought you here to this blog today, but join me in GraceLand. Let’s fall and rise and fall and rise again, painfully, beautifully experiencing grace together.
