“But He gives more grace; therefore it says, “God opposes the proud, but gives grace to the humble.” James 4:6

a: unmerited divine assistance given humans for their regeneration or sanctification
b a virtue coming from God
c: a state of sanctification enjoyed through divine grace
d: disposition to or an act or instance of kindness, courtesy, or clemency
e: a charming or attractive trait or characteristic
f: a pleasing appearance or effect 

I want…no let me correct that, I NEED more Grace!   Grace from God, a precious gift.  I know that it’s a gift because I can’t pull it off by myself.  I need His Grace for forgiveness of my sins, but I also need His Grace to be the example in this world that He wants me to be.  God has been so faithful to me.  Giving me Grace when I stood at the hospital bed of my husband and the Doctor pronounced him as deceased; I did not fall apart but was able to comfort those around me.  Grace when I returned to a store to apologize to a cashier that I had lost my patience with, Grace when I was in a car accident and everything inside of me wanted to scream, but He kept me calm.  So many times God has extended His Grace to me, too many to number.

So I pray for Grace.  I need it replenished every day, because one thing about Grace, you must also GIVE it out to others each and every day…

Hi Veronica! Oh, I love that scripture and do not want to be known as proud to my Lord. I do so appreciate the grace He gives to me!
Now I love Blue Willow and you found some beautiful pieces! That is a gorgeous teapot! Thank you so much for popping in to see me and we're in New York tonight and will be home tomorrow. I had so much fun with my little grand daughter.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)
