Thankful

God graced His beloved children with a wonderful gift - creation.

He gave us everything we needed for life.

But humanity stepped outside of God's perfect world for us and outside of the protection of His love.

And so, He beckoned us back.

He built a bridge. Not made of wood or stones. But made of flesh - His own flesh.

He called us back into His embrace and welcomed us to redemption and restoration.

Thank you for Jesus, the way to true life.

And Father, thank you that you still give good gifts.

Gifts like unexpected scholarships to writing conferences (yippee! Write-to-Publish here I come!)

Gifts like opportunities to write for Your glory (thanks Laced with Grace!)

So many good gifts from You, my Father. A loving man to stand beside me, a family full of hope and promise, a future...

Thank You God for every gift You gift. And thank you especially for the greatest gift of all: love.

Today, I am thankful for His grace expressed through His forgiveness. He has wiped my slate clean. I am forever humbled by His grace. Thank you, Heather. May you continue to walk in His grace in this new door He has opened to you. Happy Easter!

Isn't it awesome that He has given us the bridge? I am so amazed that He came, conquered the grave because He rose again.

Thank you so much for sharing your grateful heart with us.

Blessings to you and yours - He is Risen!
