Grace Abused...

Well - one may say that blogging has been on the back burner lately. I am now almost to my eighth month of pregnancy. My mom was here visiting from AZ. I had a glorious visit from my bestie, Rachel. We are delighting all things fall AND I have been enjoying the 31 days of grace that Chatting at the Sky has been posting for the past few weeks. If you don't have time to check it out, ponder a great quote that she blogged today.

"“The church, or I should say, church people, must quit adding the word “but” to the end of our sentences about grace. Grace plus is no longer grace. Grace minus is no longer grace. We are afraid people will abuse grace if presented in its purest form. We need not fear that, we should assume that . . . Of course grace will be abused. But grace is a powerful dynamic. Grace wins out in the end. It is not our responsibility to qualify it. It is our responsibility to proclaim it and model it.” - Andy Stanley

I will say amen and amen to that!
