Grace came through...

Today I am writing for 5 minutes. No editing. Just pure, raw writing. Come join us at Here I go:

Yesterday was my first time to lead a MOPS (Mothers Of Preschoolers) group where I live. I am the Coordinator.

The thing is...this hasn't been your typical MOPS year and let's just say I wasn't all graceful and sometimes I wondered where the grace was hiding. I have 5 people including me on my team and there is supposed to be 8. I could feel the affects of this at the meeting. Some of my team showed up late. We were not 100% prepared. None of us were entirely graceful in our speech, but at least we didn't stutter or say "um" a lot.

Yet, despite less team, less than perfect or eloquent speech, and oh, my paper that explains a game I didn't memorize is in a folder that I have to get at the back of the room GRACE came through. GOD came through.

Despite what the team knew was not flawless, the women laughed. They were smiling. The atmosphere was warm, calm, relaxed. Human. Like me, like them. 

Grace came through and I am smiling (this is how it was supposed to go in God's eyes and I am more than lucky to serve these women!

This is one of our decorations for this year's MOPS theme: PLUNGE. My heart felt as calm as this scene because of God's grace.


  1. Bravo to you for taking on the challenge and allowing God to work! I know these women will be blessed because of your servant's heart.

  2. Whew! Good for you coordinating MOPS! I have yet to even make it to a meeting in my town :)

    It is so wonderful the way that God provides just what we need when we need it. Even if just the grace to get through the not so graceful moments. By the way, thanks for stopping over :)

  3. So thankful that even in less than graceful moments, GRACE shines through!

    Have a Happy FMF, my friend!

  4. God's grace in amongst not feeling the going smooth, in amongst pressure. A reminder that God is with us in every situation. I enjoyed reading your post.

  5. Dionne, enjoyed reading your post. Thank you for sharing.

  6. This sums it up for me: "Human. Like me, like them."
    I am just starting as a fledgling mentor for a "moms & mentors" group at our church. I guess I should relax, knowing that no one expects me to walk on water. I love this! Thanks AS ALWAYS!


Share your thoughts with me. I would love to hear from you.
