I’m thankful for grace. More than that, I’m thankful that what I’ve received up to this point has been grace and not karma, because I know if I got what I really deserved, it wouldn’t be pretty.
I’ve been known to do and say the wrong thing from time to time. I’ve become a connoisseur of the taste of my own foot over the years, having inserted said foot into mouth on multiple occasions. I have even lost a friend or two.
But grace tells me a different story. Grace tells me that my mistakes now serve a purpose instead of serving shame. Grace says that I may not be who I should be, but I’m not who I was. Grace is not something you can ever earn or deserve but always receive out of a heart full of gratitude.
So once again, I’m thankful for grace.
