“But Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord.” ~ Genesis 6:8 ~
“You say grace before meals.
But I say grace before the concert and the opera.
And grace before the play and pantomime,
And grace before I open a book,
And grace before sketching, painting,
Swimming, fencing, boxing, walking, playing, dancing
And grace before I dip the pen in the ink.”
~ G. K. Chesterton, “A Grace,” Collected Poetry ~
“Grace is something you can never get but only be given. The grace of God means something like: Here is your life. You might never have been, but you are because the party wouldn’t have been complete without you. Here is the world. Beautiful and terrible things will happen. Don’t be afraid. I am with you. Nothing can ever separate us. It’s for you I created the universe. I love you. There’s only one catch. Like any other gift, the gift of grace can be yours only if you reach out and take it. Maybe being able to reach and take it is a gift too.” ~ Frederick Buechner ~
“You are so weak. Give up to grace. The ocean takes care of each wave till it gets to shore. You need more help than you know.” ~ Rumi ~
“Grace changes everything”
“Grace isn’t a little prayer you chant before receiving a meal. It’s a way to live. The law tells me how crooked I am. Grace comes along and straightens me out.” ~ D. L. Moody ~
“Grace is always on time.” ~ Sandra ~
“We are born broken. We live mending. The grace of God is the glue.” ~ Eugene O’Neill ~
“For the law was given through Moses;
grace and truth came through Jesus Christ.”
~ John 1:17 ~
Please pray for the people of Venezuela, those living and working on the USA’s southern border, President Trump and other elected employees. There are many individual needs; God knows them all.
