Today I am in reflective mood. I have a really wonderful daily flip chart for May 27 on Grace. I'd really like to share with you today.
God gives me grace when HE erases my mistakes and failures and covers them with His Love. When I accept His Love, He empowers me to overlook the faults of others also and to accept them as they are in Christ.
"For it is by Grace you have been saved, through faith ~ and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God" Ephesians 2:8
G ~ God's
R ~ Riches
A ~ At
C ~ Christs
E ~ Expense
I used to have a hard time understanding what Grace really was. It was a word that I knew apllied to what Jesus had done for me but I just could not grasp in my mind what it was. Then upon hearing the accrostick for Grace...it clicked....you know like a light bulb going on. I finally *Got it*. Jesus was the ultimate sacrifice for My sins. His life was taken so that I might have life...and have it fully. It was Jesus' gift to me...freely given...of no cost to me ever. All I needed was to accept it. Have you received this Free Gift for him yet?
My Chenille Bedspread Collection
I wanted to share a small collection of Chenille Bedspreads that I have been picking up over the past few years. I do have 3 that were from my Mother-in-laws that I just love as well. They are the Bright Yellow, Blue with the chenille trim, and the colorful Lavendar Basket. Many of these were found at the thrift stores I frequent. My newest is a bright pink bedspread which is folded and in a little niche in a dresser that I use to display them from. They just have such a nostalgic feel for me...I don't know why...but I love them.
These last pictures are of the pale yellow chenille spread I put on my King Sized Bed...and it is special to me because of the wonderfully threaded rose pattern throughout the entire piece. I tried to get a close up for you to see.
Isn't this Chenille Bunny the cutest? My sis gave him to me a few years ago for my birthday...a very treasured gift, that is for sure! I just love him, and he gets to sit on my bed all day!
