A few years ago, I wrote that grace is a lot like cotton. I recently found a beautiful cotton field on the side of the road while en route to pick my daughter up from a sleepover. I took pictures of the beautiful plants.
My mind wondered to the verse:
Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.
Through further research, I learned that a type of wool is made from cotton, cotton wool. To make cotton wool, the cotton must be purified, meaning removal of any seeds and extraneous matter.
Cotton wool is especially soft and pure which allows it to be used in medical applications including cleaning wounds.

By Karen Deltatto
Karen continues her impromptu series about grace and knowledge. She speaks of how trials can bring peace to our souls. It is a quandary, but you will need to read Karen’s post to learn more. She also links to another post which further expands on her current quest for knowledge, grace, and peace. We all have periods of seeking, and Karen uses writing to seek Christ’s guidance. Be sure to check out this post.
My Favorite Post
As I wrap up today’s linkup post, I realize that everything about this week links to journeys and grace. Kaitlyn touched upon this journey too in her post. She issued a challenge:
“Pay attention to your day, your right now life, and look for one ordinary but beautiful thing.”
When we look for the ordinary, but beautiful thing, I believe we will discover in our journey God’s grace and love.
I love this quote in her post:
“You’re with us on every page, good in every storyline, writing beauty into every ordinary day.”
I hope you will take the time to read it. It will really bless you today!
