Last week I found out grace is hard to hold onto when life is out of balance. The balance may range anywhere from not eating right to preparing for a big event. Which in this case I’m referring about planning a birthday party for my 5-year-old. As the days drew nearer to the date, I felt grace fleeting, but instead of leaving quickly it left like holding a slippery bar of soap. Grace is easy to have when life is calm, but difficult to grasp when life is busy.
