I watched my husband´s eyes -- eyes as blue as the sea-view from our condo -- well up with tears yesterday. He was recounting our blessings, overwhelmed by God´s extraordinary gifts to us.
So here we are, on the Meditteranean Sea, along the Costa del Sol in Malaga, Spain. Extraordinary, extravagant grace: my children dashing in and out of white-capped, azur waves, their smiles and childish cheers exclaiming what my heart longs to put into words. LeRoy and I strolling along the beach, and me not sure what´s more hot, the tropical sun beating down or the love between he and I.
We are overcome. I am struggling for words. Just when I think it couldn´t possibly be more "abundant" ...it does. This grace. This undeserved gift.
Lord, help me live this life in a way that lifts you up and shows my gratitude to You.
