  1. Grace, you have once again beautifully expressed our tendencies to weigh our evaluations of ourselves & others against Christ’s example of extending compassion & grace to all. Thank you for sharing your insights that we too may grow in our compassion toward ourselves & each other! Bless you!

  2. Thank you for sharing and understanding my pain. It hurts and it’s mine, yet God understands all. Pain is part of our humanity.

    • I am honored to hold this with you, Olivia. Yes, God understands all, and we can be with and for each other in the beauty and ache of being human.

  3. Grace, thank you for your words – so true and much needed and pointing us to Christ. I wanted to read and re-read a few times to let the beauty of the message sink in.

  4. Grace,

    Galatians 6:2 Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ. That is just one example of many in the Bible where God commands us to bear one another’s burdens. Each of us will have to deal with trials & pains. There is no book on dealing with grief & pain. Praying God will make us more empathetic towards others. Don’t worry that your trial was less than someone else’s. Life isn’t a competition. We were made to love each other. So let’s put on grace & try our best to become more compassionate & empathetic towards our neighbors. That way we are fulfilling the law of Christ.

    Blessings 🙂

  5. Grace, this speaks loudly to me. And gently. And compassionately. Thank you so much. SO much. And PS – I’m from the Pacific NW! I know what it’s like to watch rain. 🙂

  6. Thank you Grace for your beautiful words, something God is teaching me. Learning to lean into my weakness and allow His healing balm of love to cover me. Reminds me of 2 Corth. 1:3-5
    Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God. For just as we share abundantly in the sufferings of Christ, so also our comfort abounds through Christ. So beautiful!
