The third cup of grace came at the end of my walk. This is a Veteran Memorial at a neighborhood park. At the moment I was walking by the memorial, the song, Amazing Grace, began playing on my ipod. How's that for immediate download? The kicker is that the benches and garden were created by my brother as his Eagle project, 15 years ago. They were done in memory of my late husband, also dearly loved by my brother. (Plaque photo below is at the foot of the benches.) Today, as I payed my respects at the memorial, there were newly planted flowers there too. God's masterpieces were abundantly on display and the flag of our freedom was brilliantly waving. My heart was overflowing with thanksgiving for this place of honor, beauty, and memory. Oh yes, it was definitely Cup of Grace #3!
God's grace is abundant for a reason. He loves us so that we can better love others. I am renewed in spirit this morning on this walk full of grace. Once again, like the song, he has "saved a wretch like me.." I am ready to walk back into my home a bit rejuvinated. It might be crazy sometimes but it is full of bustling love. And I know God's Grace will sustain me. I am renewed in spirit and ready to "download" my next cup of grace!
