Day 10: My Favorite Word

I had to think long and hard about my favorite word, which is why this post is four days late.

Finally, it came to me. It turns out my favorite word is Free.

As in:

Free time.

Buy one get one free.

Free Refills.


True story: When Jeff and I were building our first house, we were offered a FREE drink
 while we were signing the contracts. The saleslady made a point to tell us that we could
 stop by the model home any time and help ourselves to the drinks/cookies in the kitchen.

So for the next six months, as they finished building our house,
we stopped by that model home and picked up a diet coke every time we were
in near the neighborhood in an effort to offset our largest purchase to date.

By the time our house was finally completed, I bet DR Horton had
spent upwards of $30 on Cokes for the Lyle family.

The FREE gift of salvation. It's God's grace that allows you to come to Him.
 You can't earn it. It's a free gift.
"For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith - and this not from yourselves,
it is the gift of God - not by works, so that no one can boast." Ephesians 2:8-9
