Glimpses of Grace

 
 To catch a glimpse of God's grace
We need only to look around,
At any time or in any place
Evidence of God's grace may be found,
Just look at the world around you
And you will see this is true.

"...and from his fullness 
we have all received grace upon grace."


Life is much better when you laugh and play,
Take some time each day to pray,
Look for the good in everything,
Discover a joyful song to sing.

"Make a joyful noise to the Lord; 
break forth into joyous song and sing praises!"


The earth is filled with God's majesty,
This splendor crowns all of creation,
All that has been or that will be
Are touched with divine inspiration.

"Splendor and majesty are before him: 
strength and beauty are in his sanctuary."

These are a few samples from my new 2012 Glimpses of Grace calendar. All the photos are by Gary Strader and each month has one of them, one of my verses and a short scripture, all revealing glimpses of God's grace and beauty. Praying this will be a blessing for many, daily reminders of God's grace and love in their lives! Enjoy, feel free to share, and you can order for yourself or for gifts from my website, RPJ & Company or Amazon.
