grace:: the love and mercy given to us by God, not because we deserve it or have done anything to earn it, but because He desires us to have it.
There are days as a mama to two little girls that I feel like a failure. Let's face it. Motherhood is hard. It's not at all for the faint of heart. There are times that I yell. I say things I shouldn't. I do things I shouldn't. I don't play enough. I don't play at all. I'm distracted. I don't hold her enough. I don't hug her enough. My priorities are not where they should be.
And at the end of the day my head hits the pillow and it's all I can do to fight the tears. There's something about the dark that makes us more aware of how precious our time here is. I begin to pray and He whispers to me...
My grace is sufficient for you. My power is made perfect in weakness.
2 Corinthians 12:9
Morning dawns with snuggles, smiling faces, and forgiving hearts. For today is a new day full of His mercies and grace.
