Thirty Days of Thankfulness-A Countdown: #10 (oops)

10. (again)
So, I underestimated my counting skills. I began on August 11th, thinking that there were 30 days until my anniversary. That 31st day of August goofed up my counting, so I'll do another #10 today as it's September 1st.
Today I am thankful for grace.
Grace in my mistakes.
Grace when I can't count thirty days on a calendar between two months correctly.
Grace when I'm lacking in people skills and overreact to something small.
Grace when I don't deserve it.
Grace when I'm less than gracious.
Grace when I'm doing well.
Grace that reminds me to love in ALL THINGS.
Grace when I act well.
You see, grace is not just in our error, but grace covers us so we also can show grace. We are reminded of what we have been forgiven and we can in turn extend that love and forgiveness to others.
Not a one of us deserve the blessed grace we receive, but we still rejoice in it.
Today is the first day of September, and in just ten days, I'll have my 10th Wedding Anniversary. Our marriage is a beautiful tapestry of grace woven through and through.
So today, I am thankful for grace.
