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…
the grace of a new dawn……freely given with love
May your day be filled with moments of grace – granted and received.
