amazing grace.

Every year that my family gathers around the Thanksgiving table my mom asks us to say one thing that we are thankful for. My normal response is family, friends, the food before us, yadda, yadda, yadda. They are good answers and it comes from my heart, but this year I find myself going a bit further, digging a deeper to figure out what I am the most thankful for. At a time when I feel utterly flawed and as though I am constantly falling short I would have to say that I am most thankful for God’s Grace. It seems that every year that goes by I realize more and more how horribly inept I am without it; as a wife, a mother, a daughter, a sister, and a friend. The only thing that carries me through is God’s grace. It is by God’s grace that I have made it this far and it is by God’s grace that I have the wonderful family and blessed life that I do.

“My grace is enough; it’s all you need.”
2 Corinthians 12:7
