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.

-Debbie Neal Crawford
