I know most days I just need to breathe.
Slow down and breathe.
Breathing grace? Sounds wonderful.
Stay tuned for #5, a quote, to find out more.
I'm linking up with Susanne of Living to Tell the Story to share my five favorites of the week. Come along as we share Friday's Fave Five.
My favorites this week:
1. Another milestone—a step closer to a granddaughter from India! Our son and his sweet wife have another important appointment coming up. One more thing to check off the list. This is such a long process. They’re in the “matching” stage now, and we’re all just aching to see a picture from India of the little girl the Lord has matched them with.
2. Amazing technology. I’m not one to buy into all the latest and greatest, but a few new things have helped me keep tabs on my elderly mom who’s so far away. I’m thankful for those.
A bonus fave, on the same subject. I'm SO thankful for the technology that allows us to know one another across the country. And I was thrilled this week to read Faith's review of Pearl! I SO appreciate you spreading the word, Faith, and I'm thankful for your kind comments.
3. A great series on the Tudor women. I love these! They’re written by Sandra Byrd, and I’m reading the last of the three now, Roses Have Thorns: A Novel of Elizabeth I. They’re fascinating.
4. A husband who leaves me notes. I love getting up and finding my hubby still here, but the next best thing is to find a sweet note…even after 35 years.
5. A quote:
“You can’t breathe out what you haven’t breathed in. Breathe grace.” (LetHopeIn.com)
We want to show grace and be grace, but we have to take it in first.
And there’s only one place to get grace—at the feet of the Father.
A great reminder, isn’t it? It was for me.
Wishing you grace this week,
