Spring has sprung and all around us, my Sandwich Generation family is enjoying the riches of the season – from gorgeous flowers to blooming trees to growing grass that will need to be cut…really…soon. My senior mom, grandkids, and I are enjoying plenty of outside playtime, as well as feeding the birds (and squirrels) with tons of yummy seeds to eat. I thought of all these sweet joys as I read Ephesians 1:7-8a and realized what a beautiful way they hint at the precious gift we have received from Jesus. If I feel that all this spring gorgeousness is abundant riches of the season…how much more must it be that God has given us in the death and resurrection of Jesus – and the redemption He has blessed us with along with all the riches of His grace!
In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of His grace which He lavished on us.
