June 09, 2011 / by / 3 Comments

Grace is akin to the extra time an individual gets to live after the doctors have shortened it in their estimation; grace is the brief moment the sun pushes the storm clouds aside on a gloomy day. Grace is quite possibly the most beautiful but also the most abused gift that Jesus gave to us.
