Word of the Week

What is Grace? Thursday Edition

Grace is like  . . . tulips that pop up in your backyard that you did not plant.

We moved into our new home last May. Our backyard has been an untamed pasture ever since (as we never seem to be home long enough to do anything about it).  It has great potential to be cool, I've heard from countless friends. But, having potential has done little for us. The weeds are overwhelming and the leaves are everywhere.

Yet, what a pleasant surprise to find these tulips growing in our yard this week. A tender reminder that there are many good things in our lives that we have no control over. Beauty can find us even we do nothing to create it.  This is grace!
