offer some grace

here's to grace...
  • stretchy pants on the day after holidays
  • shared smiles between stressed hearts
  • grandma's who give whole pineapples, bananas, and apples for halloween
  • those who forgive
  • long conversations about hard topics that end in i love yous
  • love in spite of faults
  • trees whose leaves turn colors and fall off, only to receive new ones come spring
  • the beginning of every morning
  • motherhood and marriage



these moments that offer us the opportunity to give free and unmerited favor just because....

that's what grace is

forgiving even though it is undeserved

i often wonder where and how in life we unlearn grace 

if you think about small children even up to teens and the forgiveness they offer

no matter how bad you suck as a mom sometimes....and believe me sometimes i do

they still look at me with love, just as His eyes from about do.......

offering unmerited, undeserved grace

i hope you offer some to someone today 

and remember those who have offered it to you

Pleasant words are a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones. Proverbs 16:24 Leave me some honey.
