Grace for the Overwhelmed

It's time for the teacher's appreciation luncheon at school. I'm in charge... and overwhelmed.

But, this is where I find grace...

My mother helps me plan the menu and grocery shop. She even cooks and chops all the chicken for me. I have a quiet Saturday afternoon to make the main dish ahead of time. Friends offer freezer space. Another friend offers to keep Sister the day of the luncheon. And, so many other mothers volunteer to help with the food and the serving.

Yes, this is grace. God tenderly and graciously provides while comforting my overwhelmed heart.
