A “Grace ~ Snuggie” comes with instructions to wear in all seasons of your life, not just in the winter months.

We’ve all seen the commercial advertising the “Snuggie”…you know, those blankets with sleeves!  And for those who may not know what one is, (really I can’t even imagine that)  I’ll let Wikipedia give you their take on one – It’s a  unisex body-length blanket with sleeves usually made of fleece or Vellux material. (You got to love this next part) It is similar in design to a bathrobe that is meant to be worn backwards.  And that my friend explains it all!

Okay, you’ve got to admit before any of us knew what a “Snuggie” was, well… we would have thought this a hysterical idea.  And yet, (I admit with a sheepish grin) I have one!  There I said it.  Don’t you dare knock it until you’ve tried it.

They really are warm.  They wrap around you like a favorite worn out hoodie that you’ll never part with!  You know that feeling.

“Therefore let us approach the throne of grace with boldness, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us at the proper time.” Hebrews 4:16 HCSB

God’s grace, mercy and love are like that for us!  They wrap around us like a “Snuggie” on a cold winter’s day.

“Out of the fullness of his grace he blessed us all, giving us one blessing after another.” John 1:16 GNT

‘Grace ~ Snuggie”  comes with instructions to be worn through all seasons of your life.  Oh, and did I happen to mention that it’s free, with free shipping!  God planned it that way!

“Now God has us where he wants us, with all the time in this world and the next to shower grace and kindness upon us in Christ Jesus.” Ephesians 2:7 MSG

Grace, then is grace – that is to say, it is sovereign, it is free, it is sure, it is unconditional, and it is everlasting.”  ~ Alexander Whyte

The Author

Hey there....so glad you dropped by! My name is Elizabeth Maxwell, but everyone knows me as "Beth." I am the wife to Kevin Maxwell of 35 years. We have 3 grown sons, one daughter-in-law, and our adopted daughter Maria. God laid on our hearts to experience the adoption journey in 2000. Our sweet Maria is special needs and from Bulgaria. God has truly been with us every step of the way on our journey with her. I live in the beautiful foothills state of Tennessee. I love my beautiful Tennessee home. From the foothills to the whippoorwills, God's beauty shines forth here. I love to laugh often. I enjoy old movies, reading books, and I love to sing southern gospel songs, especially the ones with a little bit of country. I love my sweet little job, working with Kindergartners...and yes "kids do say the darndest things!" I am encouraged by God's word and I love to dig into it. I am by no means a scholarly expert, but I do delight in His encouragement for me. I am a friend of God...after all, God's got my back! And not just my back - "He goes before me." (Deuteronomy 31:8) "He's right beside me." (Hebrews 13:5) and, "He surrounds me on every side." (Psalm 125:2) These verses remind me that I am not alone while traveling on this "Journey Called Life!" Won't you travel with me? While on this journey, I may share a recipe, a book, or even a movie or song that I love....but most of all I want to share God's word with you. My prayer is that you will be encouraged, and know that you are not alone on this journey called life!
