Grace does not hold onto hurt, anger, or disappointment…grace forgives. Grace is the unmerited favor of God. We have to be willing to show Grace as we have been given Grace.
So…we have been home for nearly 7 weeks now. I quit smoking on February 24th, like 2.5 weeks before the shut down. What are the chances?
