It's no secret that the last year has been the roughest of my life.  
I've been both shocked & blessed beyond comprehension.
Friday's events really through me for a loop.
I've been ridiculed for my faith.
It's made me draw even closer to my God.
It's made me hunger for His word more.
I've prayed for HIM to become like oxygen to my family
and to stop the enemy from attacking my family.
My faith is what has gotten me through this last year.

This was sung yesterday in church.
There are a few lines that spoke to me.

Grace - she takes the blame,
She covers the shame,
Removes the stain,
It can be her name...
Grace - it's the name for a girl,
It's also a thought that changed the world, (grace, grace)
And when she walks on the street you can hear the strings,
'Cause grace finds goodness in everything. (grace, grace, grace)

Grace - she's got the walk,
Not on a ramp or on chalk,
She's got the time to talk,
She travels outside of karma, karma,
She travels outside of karma,
And when she goes to work you can hear her strings,
'Cause grace finds beauty in everything.

Grace - she carries the world on her hips,
No champagne flute for her lips,
No twirls or skips between her fingertips,
She carries a pearl in perfect condition,
What once was hurt, (grace, grace)
What once was friction, (grace, grace)
What left a mark no longer stains,
Because grace makes beauty out of ugly things,
Grace finds beauty in everything,
Grace finds goodness in everything.

She changed the world,
In everything.


Grace finds beauty,
Grace, grace, grace,
Finds goodness.

*I'm trying to find beauty & goodness in all this.*
if you pray, i welcome your prayers for my family

I am so sorry to read about your struggles. Outwardly, you appear to be the most positive person I know. I feed off of your energy and faith. I do hope things turn around quickly so you're able to enjoy all of the good you share with others yourself. God bless you, and your family.
