For of His fullness we have all received, and grace upon grace.

– John 1:16

He curls up on the window seat
and soaks up the Son-light

He makes a meal of our fears
and sometimes squeezes in snacks of our weaknesses

He breathes in our pain
and exhales His mercy

He sleeps not at all
but enables our own rest

He stretches out and explores those empty places
chasing shadows and lighting candles

He throws open the doors
and sweeps out the cobwebs

He makes it a Home Sweet Home
with just His presence





Jesus, we can never thank You enough for the gift of grace in our lives. I give you all of me, as inept of a thanks as that seems. I stand amazed that little ole me is all You ever wanted. I love you. In Jesus’ Name, Amen…
