Grace is a Gift {A Poem}

Grace Is

Grace is a gift

wrapped with the blood of the cross

sealed by the Holy Spirit.

Given by a Father

who crushed His only Son

for our sin

instead of crushing us.

Grace began in the Garden of Eden

and lives eternal in our hearts.

Seen in a gentle response

to a child in school clothes

making mud pies

or in forgiving a husband

for hurtful words hurled

in a moment of anger.

It is the icing

on a messed up cake.

It covers the wrong done.

Grace is a gift

wrapped with our love for one another.
