G is for Grace

Sometimes I feel like a hamster on a wheel.  With the best of intentions I make promises, only to break them.  "Sure I'll bring a casserole to the next pot-luck" or "this is the absolute last time I'll ever be this late to church!!"  And then my fear of cooking for other people sets in; and I get way behind and I'm LATE!!
And have no casserole to show for it...    I wonder how many times I can do the same goofy things over and over again before all grace is just flat out frustrated.  I googled this and there is actually a lot on this topic.

But I'm not going to go there.  I'm really tired.  So I'm going to bed.  I realize that this is not a brilliant blog post.  If you are in need of grace I will pray for you.
I mean it.

I say no a lot so that this doesn't happen. Not sure if it's a very good solution however.

Nice to meet you, and I hope you're enjoying the Challenge!

I'm with ya. And you know what, Cheryl? God knows why. We're all human. And never free of mistakes.(Though I try to convince Hubby I am.) BTW, he's not buying it.

But another thing. WE can try harder the next time. Ha! :-)

Karen, I so admire people who are good with managing their time (and at knowing their limits)!!

Amen Robyn!! So well said... I think you are pretty perfect! :)

Diane, welcome! Thanks for stoppin by! Yes- Amen for grace!!! Am on my way over as we speak! :) said...

Grace is a challenge. I don't even try for mastery - I'm way too far from that. But sometimes when we're not trying, we're our most graceful selves. Don't you think?


Cheryl Klarich said...

Rawkn Robyn. I think you nailed it. When I stop focusing on ME, grace has a far better chance.

Thank you.
