Grace for the Day — 12 Comments

  1. [wiping tears away] I could feel your roller- coaster of emotions, so eloquently and honestly expressed here. It sounds as if everything went as it should have – the pain and the peace. I love how perfectly you summed it up:

    “Peace came just in the nick of time. Just when I needed it most. But then God promises us grace only for the moment we need it. Not for the future worry or the past regret. Just for the day.”

    Just in the nick of time, indeed, – always in God’s perfect timing.

    Many blessings during your time of transition and always 🙂

  2. just for the day.

    oh janis, i needed this. i love that you have found such peace; it encourages me for when my little one moves out … and grace enough for today. that’s all we need. such a wise, lovely post. xo

  3. Sheila~The Lord’s timing is perfect even though we may have to wait in pain for His plan to evolve. The pain and learning are the hard parts. Thank you for your blessings.

    Emily~It is amazing to me that I have a more settled heart now. It does still get off track with concerns every once in a while but for the most part, there is hope and peace.

    Ann~Well, that word (self-actuating) communicated to me, so I guess it passes. I think I knew what you meant. The pull and draw is definitely the tight-rope balancing act from which I sometimes fall. Thank goodness for His safety net.

    Thank you all for stopping by.

    From My Heart to Yours,
    Janis

  5. Thank you for sharing your story so honestly. You help me see how one family deals with the pull and draw, the self-actuating (is that the word?) and the mother’s heart throughout.
