Grace Laced Mondays

Welcome to Grace Laced Mondays! Grace is found in the everyday when you are intentional about taking note of it.

It is found in the sink full of dishes awaiting you after a family meal, it shines in the faces of your imperfect children, it soothes from the pages of God's Word, and it is tucked into the enjoyment of a fresh batch of cookies. Grace is in a beautiful moment and a heartbreaking one alike. Grace is blessing beyond what you and I deserve.

*********************************

Anyone can find grace in comfortable circumstances. But grace is the most tangible, valued, and welcomed when we are most aware of our need in the midst of difficulties. Jennie from Big Wide Porch shared about the challenges of doing the hard things in life, and finding grace in the midst of them in last week's post:

"I'm feeling desperate, doubting myself and my resolve to do this. And yet, I know that healing takes time and is usually painful in some way. Moving through the difficulty and into a place of receiving grace is always worthwhile. I can certainly say that about the marathon, childbirth, and parenting."

Amen, Jennie...the hardest things in life are most often the most worthwhile. Thanks for sharing and linking up!
