Grace after Divorce

Over the past few years God has showen me Grace through different people in my life.  You see when I divorced my ex, I was filled with shame despite the freedom that came.  I was shameful because I was leaving the extended family.  But my ex’s extended family has been quietly cheering me on.  The first Christmas his Grandmother who has since passed set me a Christmas card and I knew she still cared.  But what amazed me is, my ex’s Aunt Vicki and Uncle Ralph and his Aunt Bev and Uncle Mo who have reached out to me over and over again each year and are celebrating with me as I complete the course of attaining my bachelors degree.  They STILL Love me despite the circumstances.  It breaks me each time one of them sends me a card or a message on Facebook.  This is what LOVE and GRACE looks like.
