While traveling to Austin for Christmas, we stopped for lunch. While waiting in the line at one of the World's favorite fast food spots, the young man waiting on me was given a difficult time by his supervisor. He said, "Lord Jesus" with such conviction and emotion that I KNEW he was no stranger to beseeching God for MERCY! I have been reminded in the last couple of days of the need all of us experience for the Mercy that only can come from Him. As He extends His Grace to me, may I extend a fraction of that grace to those I encounter.
