Granting grace…

Human communication……flawed at best.

Many years ago, adopting a phrase used often by a dear friend, changed my internal reaction and verbal response to what I hear…when I make the choice to ‘grant grace’.

Granting grace………allowing that unseen circumstance, past experience, present situation may influence the words spoken and how the words are heard.

Grace:  Webster’s definition 9 a.  – the freely given, unmerited favor and love of God.

Choosing to grant grace…even when perceived to be unmerited:  freeing, loving, elegant, attractive, merciful…

May your day be filled with moments of grace – granted and received.
