The Gift of His Grace

busThe Gift of His Grace

 

Be angry, and yet do not sin; do not let the sun go down on your anger, and do not give the devil an opportunity.” Ephesians 4:26-27 (NASB)

Today has been a test and I did not totally fail, but I could have shown much more grace,

I was in a rush and missed two busses. The ones I did catch stopped at every stop – a snail’s pace.

I tried to buy a paratransit pass, the lady did not understand, I just showed her my upset face.

I did not show the woman grace, frustration, not a smile, was in its place.

The man at the DSHS office deserved it too, I did not yell out loud, but I was in my head space.

2 weeks I waited for his call, but not a word did I hear about my case.

Preschoolers came on there and back singing The Wheels on the Bus…& perked up the place

Trying to contain their joy, off to the fire station they wished to race.

God, help my heart overflow with your grace and not get off base.

God’s Paint Brush – Be Better Stewards

God’s Paint Brush

Nature is my beat,

God’s beauty is my party,

Renews my tired mind.

As we understand that, “the earth is the Lord’s and everything in it,” (Psalm 24:1) we can see that we are merely temporary possessors (or stewards) of things that He owns.

May we become better stewards of our temporary home, God bless!

Thank you Pat Fitspatrick for giving me this book long ago. It became one of my favorites!

Little Women is a novel, movie and a stage drama
About four little girls and their worried mama
‘Cause Papa is away fighting in the Civil War,
Since he never returns & comes through the door,
I assume he died, & they never again see the man they adore.
