{ thinking out loud }

Something tells me, that you will get what I am trying to say.

That no matter what the situation, whether in the mundane or the desperate hours of our lives, His whisper to our hearts remains the same " My grace is enough for you." Because His grace will hold you, keep you, pick you up, and get you through.

Maybe it's living in the face of great tragedy and loss. Maybe it's the pain of a heart that longs and dreams and hopes while the dream still remains unfulfilled. Or maybe it's just one of those days when the baby is crabby, the laundry is starting to look like a small mountain, and the diapers are all poopy. How is it then, in spite of those less than ideal, anything but fun, far from perfect circumstances we find ourselves in, that we also find at the very core of our soul, a peace and a joy that we can't begin to explain?

And all you know is that His love is real. His forgiveness is entire. And His grace is amazing. Every single day of your life.

"...and you are complete in Him ( Jesus ). Of His fullness have we all recieved and grace for grace. "

Col 2:10 & John 1:16
