I was reading in "Lies Women Believe" by Nancy Leigh DeMoss and was struck by this quote from a puritan collection of prayers and mediations. It seems so rich and a great jumping off point for meditations while I am in the kitchen where my mind usually wonders to senseless jiberish (especially while I wash dishes!). It will be so very helpful to ponder each of these and how it relates to my Christian life and the applications to our family. By the way...it's a great book if you haven't read it!
Grant me never to lose sight of
the exceeding sinfulness of sin,
the exceeding righteousness of salvation,
the exceeding glory of Christ,
the exceeding beauty of holiness,
the exceeding wonder of grace.
