Gratitude In Caring for An Ailing Mother and the GraceLaced Mondays Link Up

Welcome to GraceLaced Mondays, a link up dedicated to sharing any and all blog posts by like-minded lovers of grace--God's grace! Grace is found in the everyday when you are intentional about taking note of it...and I invite you to share your story, great or small, of how everyday moments are full of Grace.

It is found in the sink full of dishes awaiting you after a family meal, it shines in the faces of your imperfect children, it soothes from the pages of God's Word, and it is tucked into the enjoyment of a fresh batch of cookies. Grace is in a beautiful moment and a heartbreaking one alike. Grace is blessing beyond what you and I deserve.

 I was touched to read from Treat Me To A Feast last week, about her mother's gratitude in caring for her grandmother:

Mommy has given her home, time and energy over to caring for her ailing mother. She could find other ways to manage this task, there are sufficient resources, sufficient insurance. However, she takes seriously the notion of honoring her mother. She is grateful to have a living parent at her age; grateful to have the capacity and the resources to provide extraordinary care to her in her home.  She has unlocked the fullness of life. She, despite her own health and other challenges, daily exhibits grace and gratitude.
Matthew Henry’s commentary on the 119th Psalm tells us in part, “there is no situation on earth in which a believer has not cause to be thankful.” Simple. Gratitude is more than just a choice. It is an obligation. I’ve taken on surrender, and it’s working, but it’s not enough. I need to be immersed in gratitude.

Thanks so much for linking up,
