Life in Grace is one of those blogs I love to check regularly. I find Edie to be so inspirational, so sweet, I love her style, her posts are always so interesting, but it is her complete abandonment in writing that really draws me in. There are posts of Edie's that read like beautiful literature and I'm drawn in not only by the content, but the style. And, by abandonment I mean this: she's genuine. I don't believe she writes to try to portray who she wants to be seen as; she writes who she is: a sinner who needs a savior, one who wants to be sanctified continuously. One post that came to mind was when she writes about how divorce affected her children.
STARTING AT ZERO
I feel like most people would write a post explaining how everything is OK now because they have a new beautiful marriage. Instead, Edie just lays it out there. Raw truth, lacking pride.
My heart broke the morning I read about the fire. I cannot even imagine. So thankful God spared their lives. There was never a doubt though, that The Wadsworth family's faith wouldn't succumb to this tragedy.
Another post that really hit home for me was this one
I wrote to Edie to express how much this post meant to me.
I hope she doesn't mind if I share her response here, but I believe it's very telling of her faith and response in the midst of their own trial right now.
EDIE...so thankful to know you, to read about your life and to be able to share in this time of blessing you in this way.
