Grace (gras) n. — 1. Getting what one doesn’t deserve; unmerited favor.
2. A gift from God.

Today, I received this gift of grace,
a sweet surprise delivered by Christian Women Online.

Humbled, I am, by your kindness,
in being selected as June’s CWO Blog of the Month.

(That’s part of the mystery of grace — that it falls on the unmerited.)

“Whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.” — 1 Corinthians 10:31

    Congrats, Jennifer! You DO deserve it! Thank you so much, once again for sharing your heart on this blog.

    Thank you also for stopping by and leaving a message that made me smile and made me remember whose I am. I need reminding every once in a while!

    It amazes me how a simple blog can bring believers together in a whole new forum. Its nice to know there are others that are keeping you in your thoughts and prayers as they are going through “valleys”.

    Thanks for sending some sunshine my way~and I am praying the same for you today! 🙂

    How very cool!

    It makes perfect sense for your blog to get an award like this!

    Congratulations, you deserve it for opening your heart to all of us and not to mention that you are a fabulous writer. And there is the part where you are so encouraging to me in your comments as I see you have been with others as well.
    I can’t wait until I have the time to read more of your past posts and have the chance to get to know you better.

    Umm…they all took my answer.

    Your response to CWO’s recognition of a good thing happening humbles the rest of us as well. (Though, worth noting the rest of us wouldn’t find it all that mysterious. We see it every time we come here.)

    Oh, I defintely believe you deserve it. Congratulations, Jennifer!!

    Congrats on the blog award. I’m a first time visitor from the CWO link, so just wanted to let you know I’d been here. Your blog is lovely, I loved the post about the snail mail. It’s inpsired me this morning to send some hand written cards to family and friends. Thank you for that, and have a God Blessed day.

    I was graced by the award. And now … these delicious words from dear friends — new and old.

    If the award was the cyber-cake, you all are the cyber-frosting on this cake of grace.

    Humbled again.
