During this special time of year to Christians and several other religions I often find myself reflecting on GRACE.
GRACE means different things to everyone.
What does it mean to you dear friends?
I would like to tell you what GRACE means to me.
Grace comes from the Latin word "gratia" which means "favor". Taking that a step further specifically....God's favor.
That's it....a free and ready favor given by God to us simply because he is God.
God sees the good, bad and the ugly and love's us anyway. He wants us to return to that state of innocence and wonder we had as a very small child and to truly see the wonders of the world we have been given.
That does not mean a life without sorrow and loss...to me that means taking life in stride being able to say "what is....is" and accepting the path God has chosen for you. Often....that is not the path you would want...but it is the path God wants for you. He is the big picture guy.....we are simply looking through the keyhole.
It has taken me a lifetime to be able to reach this thought process...and often I stray...but when the drama is over and the dust settles...I know that I have been given the FAVOR OF GRACE and it is always there for the taking.
Have a wonderful Easter sweet friends,
