Glorious Morning Nine

DSCN3027

Every morning is a fresh start.  I start my day full of grace and hope for what will be.  The sins and sorrows of yesterday are wiped clean.  This is beauty and grace, extended to me by a perfect Savior.  The challenge on my part is to accept it all.  I so easily keep score of my wrongs, and it’s hard to let them all go when a new day begins.  And shoot, it’s almost just as difficult to offer the same gracious fresh starts to others.  But I’m given grace when I don’t deserve it, and because of that am in no place to begrudge the same to others.  Mornings are a reminder of this – that I am imperfect, but I am also whole and free.  And because I am whole and free, I can love others well, to share grace when it’s easy and especially when it’s hard.  Mornings remind me that every person is lovely because they are loved.
