I will never fully comprehend it. I will never be able to understand the vast measure of grace that I have been shown. But I just know I am thankful. Grace can look like lots of different things in my life. First and foremost it looks like a God who looks past my screw ups, my messiness and welcomes me with loving and open arms, and ultimately that is enough.
My life is full of glimpses of grace everyday. From a co-worker who sends a little card of encouragement when they see through the fake smile. Somedays it looks like my sweet momma taking the brunt of a meltdown that has nothing to do with her. Grace takes on the personality of a friend who can look past the fact that I am a terrible phone friend and loves me despite the fact that it might have been
10 years a week since I returned a call.
I could go on and on with stories of how I am given doses of grace daily, sometimes even hourly. It is such an undeserved act, nothing I can do can earn that grace I am shown. What a thought? Some might even call it amazing!
So today and everyday really, I am thankful for grace, for people who look past my faults, my messy, my masks and jump in the craziness with me and extend grace.
And sometimes we even have to extend that grace to ourselves, you know when we promise to blog for 31 days and only make it 18. But here is the next 18 or maybe just 1...
