Once Upon A Time

Yesterday was a day of stories.

During the Laundry Project {a visit to a Costa Mesa laundromat--with quarters, water bottles and about 15 college-age students}, I had the opportunity to hear some life stories during laundry cycles.

Then after church and dinner, Kayla and I shared about how we've become who we are...and our hopes for where we're headed...

I am always amazed when I hear life stories. The classic cliche "don't judge a book by its cover" is, remarkably true with people, too. The hurts, the heartbreak, the healing...the outside hardly ever shows what's happened on the inside.

Throughout the day, I was repeatedly reminded of God's grace and mercy.
How much we need them.
How much I need them.
