There’s grace enough for this girl…

Clothespin photo by D Sharon Pruitt (flickr creative commons) Today I’m just glad there’s grace enough for a girl who lets her heart get ahead of her head.

Who hasn’t cleaned the grout in her kitchen floor. Not once.

Who still prefers the fringes to the center of attention. Who can feel entirely out of place even with people who love her.

Who grinds her teeth because she worries. And worries because she grinds her teeth.

Who doesn’t pet her dog enough.

Or cook dinner every night.

Or accessorize her outfits (and her life) in quite the way she’d like.

Who’s having a bad today and feeling guilty for being ungrateful.

Whose to-do list is never done,

whose expectations for herself are never met.

Yes, I’m glad there’s grace enough for a girl like that…

Like me.

Like you.

Like all of us. 

“My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” 

2 Corinthians 12:9
