project 365 - day 49

thankful for grace anew each day
i'm always amazed at the amount of grace i can use up in one day; well, really in an hour! i'm so thankful that God's mercies are new each morning. (lamentations 3:23) i think it's amazing how much our God loves us that he never says, enough is enough. you are constantly screwing up and i'm just about sick of this! sure, sometimes we have to learn tough lessons over and over, but God walks through them with us, never giving up on our human shortcomings.

my husband and i have this little thing we do. if we start getting "off track" and aren't communicating well and nothing positive or productive is getting accomplished, then i just look at him and say, "can we just start over?" then we greet each other again, like it was the first time that day, and start from scratch. i've even been known to send ken outside and have him walk through the door again :). while we can't achieve giving one another the kind of grace God gives us each day, we do try and follow His example.
