A Life of Grace
“You say grace before meals. All right. But I say grace before the concert and the opera, and grace before the play and pantomime, and grace before I open a book, and grace before sketching, painting, swimming, fencing, boxing, walking, playing, dancing and grace before I dip the pen in the ink.” – G. K. Chesterton
Today, I seek the grace to deal with all the little situations in life. I seek the grace and humility to learn from every experience, to never think that there’s nothing more to learn. I pray for a curious mind, to unlearn all my preconceived notions and be more open to a life of endless learning. I pray for consistency, the discipline to NOT procrastinate. I pray for perseverance, for courage, for the motivation to finish what I’ve begun.
Today, I also give You thanks. Thank you Lord for a beautiful life. Thank you for the love of my husband, my family and friends. Thank you for blessing me with so much joy. Today, I ask for the healing of my heart, bless me Lord that I may let go of my resentments, bless me that I may see the world in Your eyes. Amen.
