Overwhelmed

Supermoon_031911_0004

Counting these graces, these gifts, is a hunt. I have to search for them at times. Others I have to simply open my eyes to see them right in front of me. I’ve also learned that if I just ask God will pour them out. And when this happens He always surprises me. I’ve wondered why I’m always surprised and I’ve come to realize it’s simply grace. Because usually by the time I ask I’ve begun depending on myself and failed somehow which never works. Yet He sends the gifts. Gifts I don’t deserve yet still He overwhelms me with His grace.
