Taking one for the team.


Many years ago, I remember my oldest daughter Meghan, came to me with a big announcement that her sister was being disobedient to us.  She went on to tell me that what her sister was doing was a big No-No in our house.  It was so long ago that I for got what the exact circumstance was but I do however remember the outcome.  Meghan had convinced me that her sister needed a spanking.  Ok, I got up and went into the room to give Kayla the spanking but something happened.  

Meghan had a change of heart, so she proceeded to tell me that she loved her sister so much that she was willing to take the spanking for her sister.  This put me in quite a predicament.  She knew what she was doing need was wrong but she did not want her sister to suffer.  Wow, this was BIG.

Does this remind you of something? How about Jesus taking on the debt of the world in sin for you.  A sinner.  

I am overwhelmed thinking that my little girl had just shown me Grace.  

Christ died for our sins.  As christians we plug away doing our daily chores and such so much that we loose the big picture.  Christ died so that my sins may be forgiven.  

Lord, thank you for your gift of grace.  Thank you for using things in our daily lives to show us your power. Help me to be the best person that you want of me.  Use me to touch others near and far for your work.  


About Denise Burdett

The child inside of me wants to create something beautiful everyday. I love to sketch, paint using watercolor or acrylics, photograph fun and odd things, sew or sculpture with clay. I also find it fun to blog and write about things that are relevant to me and my family. I pour countless hours of myself into my art because it is something I am able to escape in. I love to read books,write stories and illustrate stories. I am very passionate about my love for God. He has brought me through so much in my life: The good, the bad, and the ugly. It is because of his faithfulness that I am who I am today and all that I have is because of Him.
