Via Women of Grace Daily Grace Lines
St. Elizabeth Ann Seton is a special friend of mine – my oldest daughter, also an Elizabeth, is under her patronage. It’s especially appropriate that, as I sit here on a Friday morning looking back over the week of roughness, it’s a quote from a friend that reminds me where my focus should be and Who I need to turn to for help.
I’ve had a rough week, and yet, it’s been a week where I’ve experienced the grace to cooperate with the grace that God’s had there waiting for me. It’s been a week of lessons learned, tears shed, and prayers said.
Maybe that means, in the end, that it’s been a good week. Maybe I’m judging it by different standards than I should be. Maybe there’s been spiritual growth this week, and what I’m calling “rough” is just a growing pain or ten.
