We all fail, each and every day, and the riches of His grace meet us in that failure each and every time. And the mercy is abundant and His faithfulness secure. In the unexpected curves and bends He never leaves…
And as I journey the winding road of this life with Him, I am comforted and confident in this one thing…
I can not even comprehend the blessings He has in store … may I look for them and see them … and always give thanks.
