grace. greeting the new year.

There is no other salvation except that which begins and ends with grace.
C.H. Spurgeon

Grace is given not because we have done good works,
but in order that we may be able to do them.
St. Augustine
The beauty of grace is that it makes life not fair.
Relient K

Grace is not simply leniency when we have sinned.
Grace is the enabling gift of God not to sin.
Grace is power, not just pardon.
John Piper

teaching my children
{with a renewed spark in this new year}
so they can spend the rest of their lives
discovering the depth of its wonder.

why hello there, 2012
and everyone checking this spot on the www today
