Hello Everyone, I wanted to share my thoughts, my feelings on Grace.
The Sun Will Always Shine Again, With Grace~Wendy Comeau
Think of the word Grace, it has many, many, meanings. I have listed a few below to ponder.
GRACE: It’s a courtesy, a benevolence, a kindness, a goodwill, a generosity, a gift.
When the government, or the courts, forgives, a debt, a fine, a ticket, it’s considered a gift of grace. Or, when, a financial institution allowed you, to skip your mortgage payment, or car payment, it’s a gift of grace. The change, was made possible, for you, to have a period of grace, a gift to help you, move forward.
Grace: is also, the spiritual freedom, that you, have within yourself, you, become aware, it allows you, to create a new beginning, for a new step forward, into a new tomorrow.
Grace has nothing, to do with religion, everyone/anyone, can find the gift, of grace within, themselves.
Grace, is the main ingredient found deep, in your heart. You, will find it there when you, need to find your, strength, your, courage, your, resilience, your, hope, and your, love, for yourself, or others. You, can breathe, through every life adversity, with grace. Grace, is what you, automatically reach for, in a disaster, whether, it is your own, personal disaster, or a world disaster. Grace, is what brings people around the world together, in tragedy. Grace, is what you, reach for, when you need to say, a prayer; or, to thank God, your higher power, for allowing the sun to always shine again tomorrow. The sun, will always shine again, with grace; it will not shine, the same way. Things will look, and feel, a little different. Our, life has evolved, it has changed, grace is the acceptance, the freedom, that comes with change. Change for the uniqueness, of the situation, be open, and look for the sun. Look for something, that will make your heart sing, the special uniqueness, within you. Something, you, could not have ever dreamed up, in a million years, that came with, love, with hope, and with freedom, from deep within your heart, after, a life challenging event. After, the storm, after the crumbling of the world, as, you knew it; what gift of grace came into your life? What gift or gifts did you, open your heart up to? What love, hope, and freedom came into your life, like magic? When, you decided to let go, of your hurt, of your pain, that you, could never see, or envision for yourself? Life has a strange way of pushing us forward, whether we are willing to take a leap of faith, or not, eventually, we will all get to where we are going, even if, we are unwilling to accept grace into our lives. Grace moved me forward, when___________. Fill in the blank. It has taken me a very long time to fill in my blank. I decided a few short weeks ago to fill in the blank. My life experiences, my challenges, my trials, and my tribulations, made me who, I am, and what, I value and why, I value, what I do; in this moment in time. Without, the path, I walked, for the better part of my life, I can say, everything, would be different about me. I could not offer, anyone, my perspective, on grief, loss, dying, heartbreak, let alone how, to heal from it. I could not, write, about the gift of grace, and how, kindness, was my gift of grace, offered to me by my dying son, Christopher. Yes, that is right, my gift of kindness, came to me, and was offered to me, by my son. He, left me with “a heart of kindness.” I value, those challenges, those trials, and those tribulations, now, in this moment, and minutes throughout my day, more than ever now. You see, we may not like what we receive, however, we always have a choice to decide, to look at things from a different perspective, our unique perspective can change what we feel, has broken, our heart, our spirit, our song. We have all the tools, to find our strength, and our courage to take a big breath, and ground, ourselves, to let go, with grace. Grace, is what will drag you, from, your worst nightmare, every tragedy, trial and tribulation for the rest of your entire life, as, you know it. Grace, will give you the strength to wipe away your tears, so, you can find, it in your heart, to breathe, and let go of, what, never belonged to you. Grace, will give you the courage, to say, I am okay, I will be okay. I know, I have tools of grace, in my tool box. I know, that this too shall pass; the sun will always shine again with grace. Grace, is what you need, to begin again, you, cannot begin, anything new without grace. Grace, is knowing, that things are not what you asked for, or even what you could have imagined for yourself. I will be, the first one to say, I could not have walked my path without, the “Grace of God” or whatever, your higher power may be for you. This, is my new perspective, on my life, looking through a different lens, to see, to say, the sun will always shine with, grace tomorrow, from a different perspective.~Wendy Comeau
The shortest prayer you, can say is Thank You.
Thank you, God for Grace.
