“You say grace before meals.
But I say grace before the concert and the opera,
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
Grace and thanks are beautifully entwined together. In the moments that I choose gratitude over complaining, that is God’s grace working with-in me to accomplish what I could never do on my own.
Giving thanks happens in our daily actions: in the baking of bread, knitting of gift, conversation over tea with a friend. Thanks in the typing, writing, crafting and cooking. Thanks in the LIVING.
We are in the midst of the most joyous season–the celebration of our Saviors birth. A season of caroling, cooking, Christmas trees, and celebration. Merry Christmas sweet friends, this Christmas season may your thanks be said in the daily moments of a grace-filled life.
