Infusing grace is often the quiet, simple act of creating space or margin for ourselves or others. We have to inhale and exhale fully before we can go on with strength.
Today I need to inhale and exhale in both physical and emotional ways. My lungs are tight–the result of something my body is fighting and things my mind is wrestling as well.
I’ve decided to take a bit of a grace day for myself here on the blog, which is perhaps the most graceful thing I could do for my home and family tonight as the celebration of Christmas arrives in just four days. I want to be a loving, patient, grounded person when the 25th gets here–not just for Jason, Henry and Eloise, but mostly, for Christ.
“Behold, your king is coming to you.” Zechariah 9.9
I love this truth. I’m going to do my best to rest in it here tonight. As we anticipate the baby on His way to Bethlehem, I hope you will, too.
grace and peace,
“Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion!
Shout aloud, O daughter of Jerusalem!
Behold, your king is coming to you;
righteous and having salvation is he,
humble and mounted on a donkey,
on a colt, the foal of a donkey.” Zech 9.9
