When Grace Cradles Faith

Today I saw

Grace cradle Faith…

Wonder and awe at the newness of life

Faith cradled by Grace

Sweet sisters...

Tender lullabies whispered gently...

a prelude of things to come...

giggles under blankets...

talks heart to heart...

Faith resting

Grace holding

Hearts bonding

Love growing


Now faith is being sure of what we hope for
and certain of what we do not see.

 God's grace has saved you because of your faith in Christ.
Your salvation doesn't come from anything you do.
It is God's gift


Faith - expects much

Grace gives abundantly
Faith believes expectantly

Gracedelivers sure
Faithbuilds up

Graceholds together
Faithreaches out

Gracepours down

Congratulations dear Karen!!

These two sisters are just too precious for words. And I love how you contrasted them with the wonderful words about our Lord's Grace as it interacts with our faith.

He is the Giver of all good gifts!

GOD BLESS!

Hi - I am asking for fellow bloggers to visit my site in hopes that we can find a match for a young girl that desperately needs a bone marrow transplant. Would be great if you could visit today too. Thank you. Kelly

The title of your post really caught my eye! What a lovely message drawn out through the lives of two who are blessed to have those names. I'm assuming these beautiful girls are your grandchildren? Congratulations for the newest addition!

Blessings and congratulations on the new addition to your family.
Grace and Faith are beautiful.

Thank you so much for the prayer at the Lighthouse. I really appreciate it. My husband's surgery has changed to 6:45 am in the morning (that's the time we have to be there). The surgery will probably be soon after.
We do appreciate all the prayers.
Love and prayers for you,
AE
