LM, I just linked your post. Unfortunately, it was not as beautiful writing as yours here, but thought you might want to know that your post on grace (and this discussion) were fresh in my mind as everything unfolded. Thank you, and bless you, for reminding me to look at the cross yesterday.

chosenrebel -- thank you for your kind encouragement. Deciding to follow the way of Jesus in life, and the everyday, continues to be the single best deccision of my life. It's radical and hard and wonderful all at the same time. (Use my story any way you'd like. Ultimately, it's all God's story.)

mamatoo --I like this idea of practicing grace. It feels unnatural, this kind of radical forgiveness in the face of error -- and yet it is God's way. And in light of His radical grace, how can we NOT forgive? And, of course, the fruit of forgiveness is so sweet. That last day with my husband was wonderful, and I haven't spent the week stewing, but praying.

One more day until he comes home. I'll keep repeating it to myself all afternoon....one more day...one more day....

Come tomorrow at noon, y'all can find me at Starbucks. Alone! ;-)

2007-07-11T16:19:00.000-04:00

this is one of my favorite posts. I've been thinking about it ever since I first read it, and I always smile to think about the love you demonstrated to your husband and yourself that day. (And, by way of this blog, you've shown all of us)

Giving grace (and receiving) must be practiced, and my experience is that the more I choose this route, the easier it becomes next time.

This is what I mean. You have got to keep writing girl. You don't have to post this, if you don't want too, but that was a great story, well told, touching, grace filled and edifying. I want to take it and use it, (and many of the comments) in pastoral counseling.

It is a story that captures much of what every pastor in America (and really, around the world) wants every couple in his church to understand. Bravo.

2007-07-10T07:13:00.000-04:00

LL -- They ARE a waste, aren't they? To get to the end of the day and realize you've been too self-focused to really see the poeple around you. Somehow we trick ourselves into holding on to all of this gunk, but it is a trick.

2007-07-09T17:39:00.000-04:00

Loved the story.

Yes, wouldn't it be great if we could see our angers as a waste? What is it that makes us hold on?

2007-07-09T15:20:00.000-04:00

Cindy -- thanks for stopping by. Don't follow my example...9 times out of 10 I get it wrong. Cling to the grace of God. He's the only one who gets it right every time!!

2007-07-09T12:46:00.000-04:00

Oh, boy...something like that could easily send me into a freak-
out. I resolve to follow your example the next time. I do want grace to live at my house!

2007-07-09T07:29:00.000-04:00

Ted -- Family life is so much about grace, isn't it? One of the books I read as a newlywed was, "Families Where Grace is in Place." It completly changed the way I live in community with my husband and children.

SP -- I have a hundred more examples of choosing the path of resentment and anger, so don't put me on a pedestal. It is God at work in my life, His grace, that allowed me to forgive that day. How many stupid mistakes have I made? Forgetting to leave the crockpot on over and over and over...and God receives me back with open arms. In light of His radical mercy, how can I NOT forgive??

*sigh* You are so inspirational. Thanks for your practical, every day example. I'm currently reading She's Gonna Blow! and it was great to see those principles in action.

2007-07-07T16:01:00.000-04:00

Yes, how much we need grace. Everyday. And for the "little" as well as "bigger" things. Without it we just can't go on with each other in the Lord, as we need to.

Thanks, you have a nice way of telling your stories, LM.

2007-07-07T07:15:00.000-04:00

Sarah -- I'm glad your family enjoyed the meal too. I enjoyed snuggling your little one! :-)

Scott -- thanks for stopping by! I hope you find something encouraging here!

i am a friend of Jenn Grosser and your recent comment on Jenn's blog of singleness and married status was great . I am single and know Jesus. It is indeed tough to fit in the table at times being handicapped in a hidden way but am glad that God includes me at his table. glad that you mentioned the autistic and all those who have handicaps, looking forward to reading your blog and entering in on the dialogue.

peace,scott

I appreciate that your husband unplugged the pot. It was delicious!

Yes. A marriage without grace would be...lonely. Forgiveness doesn't always come easily, and I've spent more time than I'd like to admit angry and resentful, but I'm growing in this area of grace!

2007-07-06T15:31:00.000-04:00

I wonder who benefits more- the giver of grace or the one who receives it? Either way, a marraige without grace would be a hard place to live... Glad to hear it's alive and well in yours. I Hope you all have a great weekend!
