Grace, Amazing Grace; God giving us more than we deserve; God's Riches At Christ's expense; God's unmerited, unearned, undeserved favor. However you define it:
*Grace is what pulled me out of bed this morning when I wanted to slide back under the covers.
*Grace is what forgave me when I was beating myself up for binging on bad food before bed last night.
*Grace is what brought my husband and I, polar opposites and the most unlikely pair, together.
*Grace is why my husabnd and I have withstood the storms and still stand side by side 40 years later.
*Grace is my two little granddaughters coming this weekend, bringing hugs and kisses and sheer delight.
*Grace is what enabled this only child to survive the loss of both my parents this time last year.
*Grace is bringing cooler weather and gentle breezes to this parched and heat weary area where I live.
*Grace is creator of autumn, the season of change and color that heralds new beginnings.
*Grace took this damaged child, healed her wounds, forgave her sins, drenched her in unmerited favor.
Whatever else grace is, grace is primarily personified in Jesus Christ, my Savior and Redeemer.
"From His abundance we have all received one gracious blessing after another. For the law was given by Moses, but God's unfailing love and faithfulness came through Jesus Christ", John 1:17. NLT
