No one is perfect! Let’s offer ourselves grace by not expecting perfection!!!
This week’s Share The Love Sunday is brought to us by Tiny Buddha, a website that I LOVE. If you aren’t familiar with them, grab a cup of coffee and hunker down to spend some time – there is so much goodness to be found there!
I found this article for my daughter, who sublet her apartment for the summer and returned to find all of her things shoved in a box in the corner, her dresser top ruined, and black spots on the carpet. She wasn’t sure how to handle the situation because the person she sublet to is a classmate, someone she’s going to have to continue seeing for the next couple years.
The article title is, A Simple Way to Confront Someone To Minimize Potential Conflict and was written by Belinda Noyes. You can find the whole article here. I wanted to share it because I feel like this is something that a lot of us struggle with.
One of the main points is, do we have to see confrontation as a negative thing? A lot of us were raised to believe that if we confront someone we are being, “bitches.” When in reality we are having a backbone and not allowing ourselves to be doormats. It’s all about how you handle it. I hope you’re read the article and that you find value in it!
Even the least of us. Even the most broken. Even the least ‘worthy.” We are all deserving of Grace.
One of my favorite songs about Grace comes from a group called October Project and the song is called Grace.

Maybe listen two or three times to really let the words soak in. It’s very beautiful and meditative.
This song has always meant so much to me. And expresses so much about what I believe about Grace. Grace saves. Forgiveness saves. Love saves. And Grace is for the lowliest and least deserving among us.
How has Grace touched your life?
