Moment of Grace

Even though there doesn't seem to be a lot of Grace happening in our country this week, it's all around me.  He's all around me. 
 
I hear Him asking me if I'm the best mother, wife, and friend I can be.  Am I the best daughter in Christ, the best servant? 
 
The elections our country didn't turn out the way I had asked in my prayers.  I asked, like many, for this cup to pass us and just like His, it didn't.  Now, we will align our suffering with Jesus on the cross. 
 
We move forward as Easter people. 
 
I've read many things post election.  In the end my heart tells me that the key starts from within, then branches out to those in our homes, our extended families, our friends,  schools, communities and even our churches.  We need to teach and live our faith to our children until until the day they return safely to Jesus.  We can't wait for somebody else to do it, there isn't anybody else.  We owe it to them to teach and live our faith.  Always.
 
Where was my Grace this week?  It was in realizing I can do more, be more, teach more and live more for the Glory of God through the obedient, faithful servants that surround me, and lift me up.  Thank you Ladies!
