Every day I am amazed how deep and raw the hurt still is over losing my grandparents.
Death doesn’t compute well with our brains.
Death as tragic as my grandparents was, impossible to get over and impossible to comprehend.
I cling lately to the grace God gives.
Not just the grace He gave to save me from an eternity separated from Him,
but the grace he gives in gifts.
Like Ann Voskamp says in her Bible study I just started…….
When we stop to smell the roses and thank God for the countless little blessings around us we can experience a joy nothing or no one in the world can give.
Today’s Grace moments-
A quiet half an hour sipping coffee and cooking breakfast alone in my kitchen.
A day without rain
A compliment from a friend
Fresh eggs in nesting boxes
And a verse that God gave me
Fools give full vent to their rage,
but the wise bring calm in the end.
It may not mean much to you, but my goodness did God grab me with that one.
I am a pretty opinionated person, and I also have a ridiculously small amount of patience.
Those two things get me and my big mouth in trouble a lot.
I am so thankful I can go to God in prayer.
I have so much to thank Him for and so much I can lean on Him for.
Leaning on God not only satisfies me, but He delights in a close relationship with His believers.
That is a God with unconditional love and grace, and none of us humans can even begin to understand the depth.
