an example of BEING grace

After writing and sending this morning's devotion, I got an e-mail from a friend back in Oklahoma who shared an awesome story.  Just had to pass this one on to you with her permission.  Enjoy and be hugely encouraged....I was!

E-MAIL FROM BEVERLY (an E-Devotion subscriber in Oklahoma)
Just have to share a similar story with you regarding today's devotion.  Last Friday our granddaughter, Kayla, was in the finals of her grade school's Spelling Bee.  She was runner-up.  After the competition, her daddy and I went up to her, gave her a big hug and told her how proud we were of her.  That afternoon Kayla and I had a special "girl time".  What I told her then again was how proud we were BUT even more important was how proud we were for her actions.  She did her personal best, with a smile on her face and in her heart...went over and hugged her friend who had won.  Thought this was a great example of Grace from the big heart of a little 7 year old girl.  She showed me an example of how we are to live according to what the Lord would have us do in each and every daily part of our life.  We could all learn from the example of children.  I have always said that each time I am around my grand children I receive a fresh example of what the Lord's unconditional love is all about.
