Gratitude and Grace (Part 1)
Gratitude is beautiful. And I'm convinced it is connected to grace. Grace displays itself through gratitude. And a grateful person displays grace.
Recently my husband and I spent time with two completely different groups of people. One evening we walked away smiling and talking about how much of a gift it was to be around them. The other night we walked away simply exhausted. What was the difference? Gratitude. One group of people continually expressed kind thankfulness. They treated everyone with respect; they laughed a lot; they enjoyed the time spent together. The other expressed entitlement. They treated some with respect; they complained a lot; they spent lots of time arguing.
Those differences made me think of the power of gratitude. So I'm going to explore the connection between gratitude and grace a little this week. If you have any thoughts or insights or stories, I'd love to hear them!
