Define Grace

What does grace mean to you?

Someone asked me recently how I turned out so normal (cough) considering all I had been thru. I hought about it, even my big ego couldnt take credit as it wasnt the truth. Plain and simply, it was God's Grace.

I think the posters are getting the idea "grace" is not in a package.. it cannot be bought.. it has to be GIVEN..

Grace.. when received is something VERY POSITIVE.. to my mind, something divine...

Bunzi i found grace where you have been
Those that have known your touch
have seen the sparkle in your eyes

I have been in your grace
and struggle not to let it slip from my soul

You should explore the difference between "Grace" and "Mercy."

Grace is given in spite of error or failure to meet a standard or expectation... following an act of contrition, and the dispensation of forgiveness... enabling the party dispensing "Grace" to return to that state which existed prior to the error or failure, and for the erring party to move back into the state of acceptance, with both parties experiencing "Grace." This puts both into a "State of Grace" where they can experience the joy of their relationship without the burden of the error or failure. It takes an exceptional event for true "Grace" to be experienced either by either party.. but, if the act of contrition is "sincere", and the act of forgiveness "true", then the "State of Grace" brings true joy, peace, and emotional satisfaction, simplified "great release."

Mercy... is another matter.

May your day be filled with "Grace": both given and received.
