Lesson In Grace In a Food Co-op

Those who have experienced penny pinching for months on end know that it feels like a windfall when someone says "Here's $10.  I want you to spend it in any way you choose in this store."

That happened to me this weekend.

I felt at liberty to be "extravagant" and buy whole wheat spinach spaghetti, hummus powder, and loose leaf tea: things that will brighten up some long days, weeks, and months we have ahead of us.

The feeling of not only being able to be "extravagant," but to take my time as I perused through the store reminded me of God's grace.  His extravagant grace that knows no time limits.

And I was so thankful for that reminder.
