Hi everyone! Today we have the true pleasure of learning what Grace means to one of my favorite bloggers, jhen. Her blog, From Here to Eternity, is full of grace, as she writes each post beautifully and takes stunning pictures. Every time I read a post of hers, I come away feeling so blessed by her words. So, let's hear what Grace means to jhen...
I honestly had a hard time finishing this statement. I thought it would be easy... Grace is what I blog about on a weekly basis. So I had to go back to my roots, back to who I am and what I'm living, and ignore a post I wish I could write to share with you.
For me Grace is forgiveness. Grace is a second chance I've been given. Grace is the smile on my daughter's face and the hope in my husband's eye. Grace is the laughter I can hear and the joy in my heart after I caused one of my greatest heartbreaks.
Grace is the Forgiveness of Christ in me and the Hope I have each day. And Grace is the each day I have to extend it to another...
Grace is an undeserved gift the world so needs to receive.
A kiss, a hug, a simple smile, for a Hope they can believe.
It's the gift of love from man to wife, even after such broken years,
A choice to choose to make it last through bitter hearts and tears.
It's for the mother holding him so tight as each treatment wears him thin,
His brittle body loses strength with each breath that he breathes in.
It's for the father working hard despite his lack of pay,
His feet are tired, hands are worn, and he's seemed to lost his way.
It's for the orphan children without a hand to hold
As they innocently sit and watch their tragedy unfold.
It's for the pregnant mother who chose to give her away,
And for the anxious couple as they await their adoption day.
It's for the old and young with hearts yearning for a love,
The Grace the brings Forgiveness from our God above.
This is beautifully written. I'm so glad you could share with us, jhen. You're beautiful inside and out. Make sure to check out her sweet blog over here. You'll enjoy her photography, her family (and quite a cute little girl, may I add!), her life and her love as you read.
Love and Grace,
