A Retelling of Life

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.
