God's Grace Brings Joy

The wonderful and outrageous thing about grace is that you get to be Mary or Martha, and if you really understand grace, both bring joy.  That was one of the hardest lessons for me to learn.  I thought that what I did for Godand others made me loved, but I was really fed up with it.  Now I understand that I am loved by God anyway, even if  I do stay under the bed for a couple of months.  So I enjoy most of my busy days, and when I get a day like today I make a cup of tea, sit down with Christian, and watch the Barney movie for the nine hundredth time.

You see, when you really "get it," really understand that God's grace is enough and will always be there, then you can spin plates, juggle melons, and sing the "Hallelujah Chorus" -- all four parts, all at the same time.  And you'll be sure that God's grace is sufficient even if a few of those melons splatter on the ground!
