I am joining with Lisa Jo Baker and the community of writers at "Five Minute Friday". We are one word and are asked to write on the word for 5 minutes unedited. The word this week is " Grace"


GO

When I think of the word "Grace" I think of the years when my husband and I were youth pastors. During that time I learned "grace". For the young person that would show up  at youth camp and wander around aimlessly in the back of the auditorium and was a distraction to everyone else in the midst of worship. I would think "let him wander". To the young person who would show up with dirty clothes and smell I would think "she needs a hug". To the young person that would come every week and weep at the altar, wear out the youth leaders with every sob story, and we knew they were lies, I said," keep listening" . To the young person that came high on drugs and sat in the back, I said, "put your arms around them, pray for them". Grace ignores, grace overlooks, grace closes her eyes, grace loves. It is the power to overlook the obvious and see with eyes of love.


STOP
