Thankful Thursday ~ Grace

“But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us, even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christโ€”by grace you have been savedโ€” and raised us up with him and seated us with him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, so that in the coming ages he might show the immeasurable riches of his grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus.”
~ Ephesians 2:4-7 (ESV)

Grace has been running through my head all day…Grace is partially defined as “unmerited divine assistance given humans for their regeneration or sanctification; a virtue coming from God; a state of sanctification enjoyed through divine grace”. Yes, I do enjoy His grace, but also the grace of others–so grace will be my personal focus this week…

  • Thank You, Lord for your unmerited favor. Thank You for sending Your son to redeem my soul for the life to come. Thank You for given this gift to all who are willing to receive…
  • I am thankful for friends who will speak with truth in love, seasoned with grace…
  • I am thankful that my Sweetheart extended grace to me over the last two months, even when I was a tad frustrated (well, okay, really frustrated)…
  • I am thankful that my friend Lynn graciously agreed to host Thankful Thursday next week while I am on vacation. So please make sure that you are checking in on September 27th at Spiritually Unequal Marriage to link your Thankful Thursday post…
  • I am thankful that by God’s grace, moving our son this past weekend went without any major incident. Our son is all happy being all ‘grown-up’…
  • I am thankful for my dear readers that have continued to stop here, LWG and CWO even when I was not much around visiting over the last month…Thank you from the bottom of my heart…

As I have mentioned above, I will be on vacation next week. But please do check in here, because I have a sweet give-away starting on Sunday, September 23rd, in honor celebration of my birthday next week–I think you will like wearing it ๐Ÿ˜‰ …

Please leave your link below to share with us your thankful heart this week. Thank you so much for stopping by today. Blessings to you and yours and as always…
