Reminders of Grace

I think that Christians who appreciate the gift of grace, no matter what denomination, are always glad for reminders of it. Lutherans see God's grace in baptism. When we remember that we are baptized we are reminded that God has come to us in spite of ourselves.

I happened on an odd little way to remember my baptism recently. My online checking account uses a picture that is associated with my account as a security measure. I see it every time I log on. I had to choose a picture from the credit union's photo library and happened on one of water droplets. I labeled it "baptism".

Now whenever I go to pay bills I am reminded of God's grace. I love it. I don't normally think about God's generosity when I'm paying bills. God has a delightful way of turning things upside down.


  1. That is awesome! It's the little things, isn't it?

  2. What a great idea! My online pictures are all connected to a fun memory of something we did with the kids while they were growing up. That's happy too, but I like your idea even better.

  3. Wow, that's really neat. Love that.

  4. It is the little things. It works for me.
