Have you ever said something and then almost immediately said,  “oops”.

At the ASP mission trip mentioned below, we had a discussion regarding Jesus moments.   I stated mine was a discussion with Rev. Rob (our son) when we talked about the definition of Grace.    He told me a story about the definition of Grace and then I retold it in our group God sighting moment.

Definition of Grace,  When you are speeding and are stopped by a policeman and given a warning;  That is forgiveness!   When you are stopped by a policeman, given a warning and given a donut;  That is Grace!

The group of 80 was so quite that I guickly responded,  it is a joke.    But, my oops was,   I should have said,  it is a joke about the donut,  but it is true about God’s grace.

My son saved me, he stated quickly after my error, “but it is true”

Isn’t wonderful, two things,  Grace and learning something everyday from your children and grandchildren.


  1. Beyond the grace and learning, OOPS in business usually cost dollars and that is why I always write this word as OOP$.
