Welcome to Grace & Truth Week 45!

[x_accordion_item parent_id=”aboutgraceandtruth” title=”What Is Grace & Truth?”]The Grace & Truth Link-up exists to point people to Jesus! We hope this link-up will be a source of encouragement each and every week. It’s run by 8 Christian women (see below, under “Your Hosts”). If you’re a blogger our hope is that you’ll use this space as a way to meet new friends within the Christian blogging community. If you’re a reader our hope is that you’ll meet new bloggers that love Jesus just as much as you do! Most of all, we hope you’ll meet Jesus here.[/x_accordion_item]

When several blogs put the same linky code on their blog, the exact same list appears on each blog. Blog visitors can submit their entries on any blog that contains the list. The entries will appear on each blog where the list resides. Blog readers see the same list on each blog, and can HOP from blog to blog seeing the same list of links to follow.” ] What is a blog hop, Link-up, Linky or Link Party?

Featured Post :: Week 45

At the beginning of each new link-up week (which happens to be Friday), each host will feature her favorite post from the week’s link-up (see “The Rules” below for directions on how to be featured).

This post really stuck out to me. I was angry with my husband over something petty earlier in the week. It was stupid and pointless, yet I let an entire day go by with me fuming and fretting about it. I had already apologized for being foolish, but this post was an extra reminder to take every day as the gift that it is, and treat every person in my life as a treasure that I won’t hold forever.

I WAS enjoying my plans for his special day, but I don’t act like I enjoy doing things for him all the time. Instead, I often wonder what he is going to do for me. “What if I treated every day like it was his birthday?” I thought. Not necessarily with cake and a gourmet meal, but by treating him special, by doing the little things he likes more often.
At first it sounded silly, pretending it was always his birthday. How exhausting! But then I remembered that while it can’t be his birthday all the time, every day does have the potential to be his last on earth. Or mine. Now, I don’t mean to be maudlin here, just Biblically realistic. The truth is, neither of us is promised a tomorrow. Maidservants of Christ

I hope you’ll check out the rest of the post. It’s really beautiful and touching, and clarifying to think about the fragility of life!

JennAbout Jenn: I’m a Christian wife to an amazing man (since 1998) and a stay-at-home-teaching mom to four special & incredible boys (born in 2004, 2005, 2007, & 2009). I’m messy and cluttered, but working on that (really, I am!). I’m a discouraged perfectionist and a classic procrastinator who probably has both ADD & Autism, so I tend to jump from topic to topic (and activity to activity) without notice. My Love Languages are Words of Affirmation and Physical Touch. I’m an INFP who enjoys friends but loves to be alone. I love getting and giving hugs, and encouragement is a Spiritual gift of mine that can too-easily be turned into the weapon of discouragement, if I’m not careful. I enjoy writing, singing, words, drawing, photography, digital creations, and reading. Oh, and pizza, tacos, and steak. Now I’m hungry. That reminds me; I eat gluten free and try to eat organic and avoid white sugar and GMOs as much as possible.  Find me on Facebook (Writer/Editor page) (Fan page), Twitter, Pinterest, or Instagram.
