Ren sat down with paper and crayons and created a card for me. Right after I yelled at him and started crying. He handed it to me and said "I love you Mama, I'm sorry I spilled the milk and made another mess for you to clean."
Just like that, grace. Unmerited favor...that's what grace is. When we don't deserve and can do nothing to earn it...that's when it shows up in the sweetest and most unexpected ways. Ren extended me grace that day. In the form of a little hand-drawn love card; I received grace.
My I be a giver and a receiver of grace upon grace. The heart lessons that I go through in mama-hood are the most revealing of my character and soul. The parts that have to be deep cleaned out and then cleaned again, show me again and again my great need for my Savior. I am so grateful for his grace upon grace, his patience and forgiveness.
