We can give them.........GRACE♥

Stunned. Shocked. Saddened.....Seemingly helpless.  But are we?
Or, in the wake of yesterday's tragic events.......Is there something that we, God's people, God's CHILDREN can do?
I asked Him about it last night. Most of the night in fact.
I shed tears as I spoke with Him.......cried out to Him.....praying for the children who were snatched from the arms of their earthly parents......praying for the mommies & daddies who now feel the emptiness in their homes and in their hearts....praying for the community who gathers to find ways to express their love and demonstrate their support........
I asked God...........what can we do? what can we send? what can we give?
and He answered...........
God ALWAYS answers...
He answered,
Give them.....GRACE.



Give Them Grace. Show Them Grace. SEND. THEM. GRACE.
Friends, if there's one thing I'm learning on this faith journey, it is the importance of listening to God, and in turn, obeying Him.  Now.  Not later.  Now. He speaks. We listen.
So here is what the Elness family came up with.........
We are sending a shipment of Max Lucado's "GRACE for the Moment Devotions for Kids" to the students of Sandy Hook Elementary.  27 copies in honor and memory of those taken.
We placed the order online, with instructions to ship to the school, and we prayed for each set of tiny hands that we hope will soon hold one.

Will you consider joining us? Whether it's one copy, ten copies, or one hundred copies?
Imagine if enough copies were sent to place in the hands of every small student at Sandy Hook?

Let's share the GIFT of His Grace this Christmas. ♥

The people brought children to Jesus, hoping he might touch them. The disciples shooed them off. But Jesus was irate and let them know it: “Don’t push these children away. Don’t ever get between them and me. These children are at the very center of life in the kingdom. Mark this: Unless you accept God’s kingdom in the simplicity of a child, you’ll never get in.” Then, gathering the children up in his arms, he laid his hands of blessing on them. ~Mark 10:13-16

Sweet Blessings,
