Living In Grace {Day 7}

Day 7

It's the end of day 7 and I am feeling overjoyed and my heart is full.  Today is my father-in-law's 65th birthday, and I can truly say it is by the grace of God that he is still alive and with us.  We had a family celebration for him tonight, and he received more handmade cards and gifts than one knows what to do with.  It was such a joyful time. 

Living in grace for me today was realizing after I lost it for the millionth time with my kids that I need to show them more grace.  Grace today meant when I wanted to scream I bit my tongue and just dealt with it.  Being full of grace today meant when I wanted to hold that grudge against that person that hurt me one more time, I prayed for them instead.

Today has truly been a heart check kind of day for me.  I am trying to honestly reflect and re-learn what all I have been learning about grace.  I want to be able to encourage you all in your walk with grace, and to honestly do that, I need to encourage myself to keep living in grace.
