Today was the first day I have been to church since we learned of our news with Grace. To say I was a little anxious would be an understatement, but I knew it was important to be there to be surrounded by my church family, the body of Christ. We went to Sunday school first, and our lesson was about hope and very appropriate for our circumstances today. Then we went to morning worship. The first thing that was said was, "today is all about grace". Chad and I looked at our bulletins, and we noticed things like "Wonderful Grace of Jesus," "Amazing Grace My Chains Are Gone," "Grace Greater Than Our Sin," and Jonathan's message "The Law vs. Grace" (Acts 15:1-35). One of the songs says" Grace, grace, God's grace..." This reminded me of Chad's and my dedication of our baby Grace to our Father, that she is His, and we are simply blessed to be her parents. Through everything in worship, it was like God was reminding me that He is with us and He will sustain us throughout our circumstances. While we have no idea what our future holds, we will trust Him to be with us and sustain us, to fulfill His purpose for Grace's life, and to bring Himself glory through our lives. Thank you, Lord, for reminding us of Your grace.
