This past week I made a big mistake which had serious consequences, and God reached down and extended mercy to me when I was greatly in need. He didn't erase all of the consequences, but He did grant me grace in eliminating some of them and no matter what happened, He has forgiven me.
In His mercy, He has given me a reprieve from the war against micro-organisms. This battle is over and man has triumphed over germ (for now at least). I am filled with gratitude for the chance to rest from the battle.
A broken de-humidifier and no receipt to be found (after hours of looking) left me in another scrape this week. Customer service was not helpful and I had resigned myself to dealing with one more broken thing (add it to the list of everything that has gone wrong with our vehicles lately)...After one more phone call God poured out His grace and mercy once more - we could exchange it even without a receipt.
So, Merry Christmas to me - God has given me mercy and grace when I needed it most and it has been the best gift ever.
Let me pass along a little of the love:
XXXXOOOOO (Kisses of Mercy)
