It is by grace!!

It is by grace... It is by grace that we are gifted each day of life, To love, To dream, To be who we were created to be. It is by faith that we continue on, Through sickness, Through sadness, Through times of waiting in shadows. It is through hope that we have joy, Have endurance, Have peace, Have patience. It is because of love at we are saved, Love at the cross, Love in our hearts, Love from Jesus Christ. Today, I am so thankful for the time that I live in. I have daydreamed in the past of living in a different decade, but today I know that I am blessed to be HERE. We are going through some medical stuff, and our son has developed terrible asthma. I can look at this and think: this is such an attack on my family. Or I can look at this and think: THANK YOU JESUS. Because I live in a time where there is help for my son. If I didn't, I probably wouldn't have him to hold anymore. I live in a time where there is help for my friends son, who has graves, has had a tumor removed, and now recently was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. I look at my church family and I realize, how few of us would actually be here if we lived in a different time! Praise the Lord for knowing when and where to place me. Praise the Lord for medical help for my children, myself, my friends. In this world we WILL have trials... But HE HAS OVERCOME THE WORLD!!!
