It's Five Minute Friday when I link up with The Gypsy Mama. We receive a one word writing prompt and get to write for five minutes flat. Our word for this week is: GRACE.
Although I like things to be perfect, they never are. I can plan all I like and inevitably something unexpected happens. Working with little children teaches me much about God's grace.
I love to take photos. My camera is always close by my side. There are times when I want the perfect shot but the little ones don't always cooperate. Shoes fall off, fingers start picking noses, tears begin to fall.
It causes me to ponder how the Lord sees His children. I don't always cooperate. Instead of obeying, I delay. I consider my own plans instead of His plans for me.
There's no hope for me.
But then I remember God's grace and mercy. I can't do anything to earn it. But I can accept it and be grateful for it.
Blessings and love,
