I see four walls staring at me, the same trees, an occasional car drive by, the bus in the morning and in the afternoon and whatever I pull up on my screen, for the better part of each day, most days. The faces of my children are gazed upon moving pictures and my dutiful husband is heard moving about doing the tasks of mine and his.
Even in all of this boredom of a leg up, I do see Moments of Grace. They aren't huge epiphanies, just moments.
The help of my three, almost five and six year olds moving my things from room to room, trailing hobbling me.
I see Your grace.
My littles getting a chair for me so I can pull together breakfast or lunch.
My sweet family and friends bringing dinner for us so I can simply put it in the oven and have it ready for when My Love gets home.
Him, cleaning it all up every night, followed by baths.
The Christsmas shopping. Grace, oh the grace my husband has shopping with three kids, days before Christmas, without complaining.
Our family leader, working hard during busy times at work, but making sure he comes home for dinner and to take over my couch parenting.
I see Your Grace.
And now, My Love is sick, and he keeps on keeping on.
My Mom, My Dad driving three hours to come and help. My Mom coming again next week.
The many people who have taken over driving our children to and from school and pop up doctor apointments.
Driving me to doctor appointments.
Prayers, cards, encouragement.
Friends bringing broken leg things to make my life easier.
Grace shown by those that picked up our slack on Christmas meals, because frankly, he was done and needed a break.
I see the Holy Spirit coursing through each of those people who have come in our time of need.
I see Grace even in contained in four walls. I know Grace goes on among those trees. Grace happens in an occasional car driving by. I'm sure there plenty of Grace happens on the bus. I know Grace is living in the lives of places I visit through my screen.
The Holy Spirit is in my children no matter what they are doing. And my husband is a never ending source of Grace and strength for us.
Even though I do little these days, He does much in my life.
And my God will supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus. ~ Phil 4:19 RSV-CE
Please feel free to share your Moments of Grace with a beautiful group of Ladies at Suscipio.
