A child sat worried that he was unable to complete the task I had given him. One that was not timed, but clearly not going to be finished before the day would come to an end.
A child not sure why anger or annoyance surfaces spilling over into friendships.
A child that arrives late most every day with a look of worry.
A child walking down the hall, head down.
Not to mention the interactions with friends, family, coworkers, parents, community members… and the list goes on and on.
Did I mention me? Probably not… but I too need GRACE
Grace comes in so many forms. Find just one way to show it to others. To yourself. A path to BETTER.
a bridge… extended from one to another so no one ever feels alone. A simple hello when a child enters your room or you pass someone walking by.
forgiveness… because any other way builds resentment and lays a poor foundation for both you and others on this journey of life. It is a heart changer… a life breaker… don’t just push to forgive others, but even more challenging forgive yourself when needed.
hope… this is nourishment for the soul… for emotional and physical well-being
happiness… everyone deserves happiness! Be the positive… go out of your way to spread goodness. Be the one to share it… it will come back to you in abundance.
mercy… this is such a huge component of grace. Not one of us is beyond needing mercy. Think of how often you need this as an adult… now think of a child.
love… love a child enough to know what they love… what they are passionate about… what they thrive on… find their good on their worst day.
kindness… spread it with a smile… a kind word… a hug… acknowledgement of one’s presence… find one way that you can share this part of grace and you will change lives!
blessed… never forget what you have. Challenge yourself to not ask for one thing and simply acknowledge your blessings. Blessings are gifts. Count yours. Help others to see their own. Do this during a difficult time when you want to ask for so much… it opens your eyes and you feel the purest form of GRACE!
Grace can mean so many things. What does it mean to you?
CTA: (Call To Action): find what it means to you and share it. Bestow it on yourself and others.
For me, I think… Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound
