Grace begins and ends prayer. Grace is what we call what is left over after the scouring of the self, the dying into self. Grace is what was there before we ever looked at ourselves in prayer. Grace gives us our initial impulse to pray.~ Ann Belford Ulanov ~
from her book
"Grace gives us our initial impulse to pray." I agree. And it gives us so much more.
Grace. I even like the word.
Have you noticed a moment of grace in your life lately?
I have. I received over $100 in the mail today. Part of it was a rebate--part was overpayment of a bill I owed. Okay...so it was my money. I still got checks in the mail today and I wasn't expecting any.
Oh...and I needed decaf. I went to the coffee shop where I buy it and it was free. (I had a full punch card.)
What about you? Tell me yours.
