Thankful Thursday

Join our host Iris@Grace Alone and share what you are thankful for this week.

I have so much to be thankful for everyday. I often forget that and I love this meme to help remind me. I am thankful for God's forgiveness. Oh, how I need it every day. I mess up daily and if not for His grace, well, where would I be? I thought I was good at extending that grace to others,until I have children. Why is that we get so much more angry at those we love for things they do? It's ironic isn't it? I have to ask God every morning and throughout the day to help me be gracious towards my children. It's hard to remember that when they knock something over time and time again after being told not to touch it. Or when you told them we cannot have a cookie until after lunch and they never hush about it and do not want to eat their lunch. Oh boy. That is when I forget how gracious my Lord is to me when I do something He asks me or told me not too. I'm not there yet in everything,but I am learning. I love my Lord and Savior Jesus for giving His body for a sacrifice and for God extending His grace to me on the cross.

Don't forget to read Iris' post and link up with us.

Sorry, if I do not comment. I usually right the night before and don't get to use blogger on my phone. 


  1. I too need to pray that I extend grace to my children. It is ironic how us humans behave. Sometimes I think God is teaching me true grace as I stumble through trials with my children.

    Thank you for sharing.
