grace...grandkids...God's goodness

"But unto every one of us is given grace, according
to the measure of the gift of Christ"
(Ephesians 4:7)

What an awesome gift of grace this little girl is. God is so good. He has blessed me immeasurably and I will be forever grateful for his generous love.

"Now unto Him that is able to do
exceeding abundantly above all that
we ask or think, according to
the power that worketh in us."
(Ephesians 3:20)

God has gifted me with the amazing title of  'Nana'. I absolutely love being a Nana. It is a huge joy to be a grandmother to my many blessings. 
I love little girls who look so pretty in their dresses I bought them in Nicaragua. 

I love little boys that always have a serious look on their face.
I love little boys with new haircuts.
And little boys who THINK they got a haircut... :) 
I love little boys with dark hair that I don't think EVER needs a haircut.
I love the reception that Papa got when he arrived home from Nicaragua a day later than I did!

The grace of God is overwhelming. Astounding. So undeserved but so appreciated. It is immeasurable and it is indescribable. It fills me and it blesses me. His grace is amazing and I am so thankful that my God dispenses it so generously at just the right time.  Grace moments sprinkled throughout my life that I can look back on and see the working power of His sweet Hand. Grace moments that I know will continue to be bestowed upon me by a loving God. Sweet grace and mercy from the Hand of a good God. 

He thrills. He astounds. He blows me away with His touch. He ministers. He covers. He goes above and beyond what I could ever imagine. 

Lord, you are so good and you are so loving. You are mighty and powerful and gracious and I love you from the depths of my soul. I will praise you and worship you with all that I am as long as I have breath.

"O LORD, our Lord, how
excellent is thy name in all the earth!
who hast set thy glory above the heavens"
(Psalm 8:1)
