New Blog Title

Why did I change my blog title?

Well the best way to explain is to go back to when I first started my blog.

Jon and I just got married.  I wanted to blog about our life.  We were about an hour away from family and friends.  I figured people might want to know how our newlywed life was going.

Believe me.  I still feel like we are newlyweds (in a good way).  I still get excited when Jon comes home from work.  I delight in the fact he wants to be with me where ever he goes.  Some times he calls me when he has to work Friday afternoons to see if I could just come and give him company! :)  I love him to pieces.

Aside from the blog being helpful for friends and family to check up on our life, I also thought hoped Jon would give his input and make a few blog posts of his own!  Who was I kidding?  My hubby loves receiving encouraging notes from me, but when it comes to him writing....he would rather sleep, eat, or do anything but that!  So "Kaisand Korner" was more of "Mary's thoughts and opinions on how married life was going."  It didn't really fit.

So, for the last couple weeks I've been trying to think of a new name.  Something unique but not lengthy.  While at church on Sunday we sang Amazing Grace/My Chains are Gone.  The lyrics are so moving.  And they totally fit with my thoughts and testimony...and my walk with God.

"Amazing Grace (My Chains Are Gone)"

Amazing grace
How sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me
I once was lost, but now I'm found
Was blind, but now I see
'Twas grace that taught my heart to fear
And grace my fears relieved
How precious did that grace appear
The hour I first believed
My chains are gone
I've been set free
My God, my Savior has ransomed me
And like a flood His mercy rains
Unending love, Amazing grace

The Lord has promised good to me
His word my hope secures
He will my shield and portion be
As long as life endures

My chains are gone
I've been set free
My God, my Savior has ransomed me
And like a flood His mercy rains
Unending love, Amazing grace


The earth shall soon dissolve like snow
The sun forbear to shine
But God, Who called me here below
Will be forever mine
Will be forever mine
You are forever mine


Aww, I could sing that song FOREVER.  It really is good.  We are set free thanks to our Savior!  His mercy rains....never ending.  Hallelujah!
And that's where I came upon the new blog name.
Set Free
Because the things holding me far away from Jesus and His love has been broken.  I am set free.  
It's catchy, don't you think?

His amazing love has set me free.  Set all of us free.  And that's why I am able to blog.
