Grace upon Grace.
Grace is a blanket of hope.
When I was discharged from the hospital I was overcome with gratitude. Gratitude and something. Something I couldn’t quite put my finger on, something I felt, something I was experiencing, but couldn’t explain. It was a calm over my body. It was a lot like a weighted blanket - that safe and calm sensation. A weighted blanket is said to provide a gentle pressure on your body as to help your body with its natural hormone, keeping you in a relaxed state. The thing is, what I was experiencing was not a weighted blanket, it was organic. I was able to see things clearly for the first time. Yet another virtue gained while in the hospital. I sure do love that.
It was grace. I was able to view life through the eyes of grace. For the first time.
Grace is so powerful. Grace is the one trait that makes you and those around you feel more at ease. Grace is important because it helps you be a better version of yourself; when you show grace to others, it makes both of you eager to do good, do better. Having grace is living with a sense of calmness and extending a “benefit of doubt” to others. Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a battle you know nothing about. That, my friends, is grace.
Don’t you think we all need that right now? Extend a little grace, both to yourself and to others.
Let’s sit with this for a moment, let grace permeate …
So I ask you think about grace…
How did grace show up for you today?
How do you show grace to others?
What does grace mean to you?
How can you bring more grace into your life?
