Thankful–Day 22

Today I’m thankful for grace.  My friend Nicki’s blog post today started me thinking about it.  It’s actually about the Santa debate.  And I don’t want to talk about that here, but it made me think about all the decisions we make as parents.  Some seem big and some seem small.  Some we make without really thinking about it and some we agonize over.  This parenting thing is a tad bit overwhelming at times!

Thank you Lord that it’s not all up to me regarding how they turn out, amen?!  I’m grateful for God’s love and for the grace that He gives.  By its very definition it is undeserved and freely given.   And it’s because of His grace that I’ve been saved!  Talk about something to be thankful for!!

“For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God”  Ephesians 2:8

Thanks for that. I sure am thankful for it as well. No other way but by His grace!
