Living A Life Of Grace 

Grace exists inside of all of us and around us. It is our inner beauty
that radiates outward, touching everyone we meet. It is that unseen
hand that comes from the divine, raising us up when we most need it. To
be able to live in a state of grace is not based on worthiness, nor is
it earned through good deeds, ritual, or sacrifice. Rather it is an
unearned favor, freely bestowed and available to all, that is inherent
to our birthright. All we must do is open our eyes to its presence and
we will find and experience grace everywhere.

Grace is in the rain bringing relief to drought-ridden farms, and the
unexpected lead for the perfect job opportunity that comes from a
stranger. Grace is what happens to someone when they miraculously
escape injury; it is even the simple events that happen to us that we
call "good luck," like when we don’t get a parking ticket after are
meter has expired. Grace resides in the love between two people, the
gift or check that comes unexpectedly in the mail, the cozy comforts
that make up a home, and in the acts of forgiveness we bestow upon
others. It is grace that moves us to go out of our way to help a
stranger. In music, a grace note is the pause between notes that is so
important to the pacing of a song. Grace is the state we are in when we
are doing nothing but just being who we are.

When we accept that we always exist in a state of grace, we are able to
live our lives more graciously. Knowing we are graced gives us hope,
makes us more generous, and allows us to trust that we are taken care
of even when we are going through difficult times. Grace is our
benevolence of heart, and our generosity of spirit. Grace is
unconditional love and the beauty that is our humanity. When we know
that we are blessed with grace, we can’t help but want to live our
lives in harmony.
