Paul said, “Jesus Christ came into the world to save sinners, of whom I am the foremost.” Thanklessness, discontent, and unbelief are vicious sins that I have allowed to paint my life with ugliness. I am learning, slowly, to fight against these by the graces and mercies of God, shown to me through the love tokens he presents to me each day. Yesterday, the green of spring trees and a voice, clear and untainted with pride, singing praises to God. Today, laundry hanging on the clothesline, dancing in the breeze and a hug from my 13 year old son, warm and solid. Grace and mercy in love tokens for me, the foremost sinner.
