Look at you, giving people grace. I see you. They didn’t deserve it, but you gave it anyhow. You gave it not just for them, but for you. You’ve grown. You’ve matured. I’m proud of you.
Now what would it look like if you were as gracious with yourself as you are with those around you?
Hmmmm imagine that…..imagine giving yourself grace.
That’s what this month’s affirmation calendar will help us with.
Give Yourself Grace.
If you’d like to do more than sharing these affirmations and are interested in volunteering to help with a future project at Bishop Anderson House, please let us know by completing the Gifts of Time & Talent (https://www.bishopandersonhouse.org/volunteer/) or help support our ministries with a financial gift (https://www.bishopandersonhouse.org/donate/)
