I love taking my children to the park. It is one of our favorite things to do. We play together, go for walks, then mommy sits back and reads as the kids play some more. It is always a great time. Autumn is my favorite season. I love the colors, sound of rustling leaves, and smells. I love Autumn. Today, take a moment to get out and enjoy God's beautiful Autumn nature!
But the fact remains that God showed grace to us so how can we not extend it to others?
"For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is a gift of God." Ephesians 2:8
We are all sinners. We all mess up and fall short of God's glory. Yet He still extends His grace to us.
We do not always do things the way God wants. We hurt Him. And at times we may even stand for something He is against. But He still extends His grace.
Who are we to hold onto that grace and not share it?
Here is a beautiful explanation of grace:
I will pray for you daily. I will ask your forgiveness and grant you the same. I will be your friend. ~The Grace Card
When grace is needed, offer to pray for the person daily. Ask their forgiveness and grant them forgiveness. Be their friend.
Review and a giveaway!
Theo - This cute animated movie features Theo, an Englishman and his two mice friends, Belfry and Luther. Theo knows all about Gods Word and teaches children about Biblical values. My two youngest kids, though older at 8 and 10, still loved the movie and look forward to seeing more.
The Shunning - The Shunning is a movie taken from Beverly Lewis' book series, The Heritage of Lancaster County. If you are familiar with Beverly Lewis, her stories are based on the Amish. The main character, Katie, learns shocking news that will change her life forever. She has to learn to forgive and follow God's will for her life. I am a fan of Ms. Lewis and really enjoyed The Shunning.
Grace Card - Tragedy strikes a family and changes their lives. Years later they are still dealing with this tragedy when God brings two men together on the job. They are from different backgrounds, different walks of life, and different beliefs. Will grace be extended? This movie was excellent! A very powerful lesson in extending grace, even when it is hard. This is a movie I will watch again and pass on!
