Thoughts on Grace: Sabbath Moments Meme

Thoughts on Grace: Sabbath Moments Meme: hosted by Colleen at Thoughts on Grace is a weekly meme that reminds us to rest in God and live in the moment, to enjoy God in silence and nature. This week, the moments which touched me deeply and reminded me of God's Love were both inspired by my daughter. When her bus comes up the street to pick her up in the mornings she covers my face with kisses. Every morning without fail. She jumps into my arms and showers me with love. And I am reminded of what a miracle she is. A gift from heaven. The Lord gave me a "word" the year before she was born that I would have a baby....and the Lord's word was good. She sat on the counter today while I washed dishes and chatted to me about God for half an hour and in that short time I learned more about love than 100 sermons could have taught me.

One of her little tidbits of wisdom was this:
Sins leave little black spots on a person's soul and the more a person sins, the darker their soul gets. If their soul gets really black, it's really bad and makes them forget how to be good because God can't help them as much. That's why forgiveness is important. 

Made sense to me :)


  1. Mary, I commented here before but it didn't seem to go through. In case it didnt go through, let me just thank you again for participating! Your moment with your daughter was truly precious! To know about forgiveness at such a young age! God bless!

  2. Makes sense to me too! You've got one smart cookie there! What a blessing!

  3. Mary, I tagged you in a new meme! Just go to my site and answer the questions that I had to answer too! Only if you want to. It is just a fun game. I don't often do them but thought I would do this one.
