Thought for the Day – Grace

Earlier this year In my role as Workplace Chaplain, I was invited into a local company  to meet with a young couple

They, like so many others had experienced the deep sadness and disappointment that comes with a long and difficult wait for a child.

But now, just before they embarked on medical intervention a miracle appeared to be happening!

We met in their workplace and at  lunchtime we prayed together that healthy growth and birth would develop from this tiny spark of new life.

I stayed connected with them throughout the pregnancy and once their beautiful baby girl was born I was quick to visit.

Connections with their local church and Rev Mark Fraser were refreshed  – (the church they were married)  and they kindly asked me – with Mark’s agreement to be the one who baptised this precious child.

It’s no surprise that her name fits her perfectly – Grace.
