Grace... now

Grace is something we need now... grace is something I received immediately from God when I turned to Him... even before I turned to God, He had already showed me grace through His Son, Jesus. Then why do I struggle with showing God's grace to others right now???? It isn't something I should have to pray for... it is something I should give "graciously" because that is what I have received from God. But my flesh is telling me to show the opposite of grace... where does that get me??? I think the answer to that is... NO WHERE!
"Marvelous grace of our loving Lord, Grace that exceeds our sin and our guilt! Yonder on Calvary’s mount out poured, There where the blood of the Lamb was spilled.
Grace, grace, God’s grace, Grace that will pardon and cleanse within; Grace, grace, God’s grace, Grace that is greater than all our sin."

No card today, but a picture of my niece, Brooke, who graduated on Sunday. Had to snap this picture with her & her Uncle Luke. We are so proud of her!
