Finally done for the year! Except for the fact I am still buying a few pretty ornaments at the Good Will store, compliments of 'Target' donations. And at 75% off. I have decided that I have a disease called 'Wonderful-itus'....that strikes me often while out shopping. Its such a fun affliction, causing me to oooh and aaah, especially if the price is right. I've brought home so many books already this year. Can you imagine my wonderful-itus happiness when we found a copy of 'Affairs at Thrush Green, by Miss Read'...??!! I have many of her books but not this one until now. And for $1.99! So many special things to read and enjoy....and other things donated to Good Will as I clean closets. Blessing for blessing. Hope you are having a really good day!
"And God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that ye, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work;....II Corinthians 9:8"
God's grace enables us to do things we ordinarily would perhaps have no desire to do. It gives us power to do his will. God's grace is his divine help. There is grace for every situation. I like the word itself. Grace. It sounds like something special in the midst of life. And it is special. There is witnessing grace, dying grace, flunking grace, and on and on. The humble say, 'God can be God in my life'. We can't control every situation in life, as much as I'd like too! Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound....
