graceful things to chat about

As our coast prepares for a hurricane, my heart is recovering from one this morning. We have a girl who is … reluctant to go to school. I wish it could always just be easy, but easy doesn’t push us into Jesus. And so we pray and we wait to watch the miracles. It helps to remember grace, to think of the hands that made heaven and earth are the same hands that hold us up. Oh, how I need holding up. More pictures of grace:
