As I finished sharing my little monologue on grace, Cupcake looked at me.
"Really? Really!" with an incredulous smile.
It was an awesome moment!
Also, as a bit of backstory, the lost sticker was re-instated immediately after I emailed the teacher with my confession. I assured her that Cupcake did not forget her homework, but that I had thrown it away, and together we went dumpster-diving to find it. Alas, it was not to be found....
As it turned out, Cupcake earned a perfect month at school on the same day as she achieved her perfect month of grace. I think it's beautiful that God allowed her to excel in her behavior as she soaked in the grace.
I think we could all take a lesson from that. :-)
Blessings to you,
