Monday Reflections


Grace means finding peace in the storm so that others can benefit from your calm, from your faith, and from your belief that we are all doing the best we can.

Funny thing is that the grace you give has nothing to do with whether they are calm, faithful, or doing their best. They could be angry and frustrated. They could have lost faith long before they met you and they could believe that they are doing the bare minimum. But what you have is something new and exciting and adventurous -you have calm and faith and you’re in a place where you shine. Which is why you gift them, for this moment, this minor exchange, a chance to feel it all too. And that, is grace in all it’s glory.

Just think about that one time your best looked and felt like a whole wreck but someone saw more beauty in your circumstance than you could see at that moment. They accepted you that moment and said this is ok. This works perfect and you’re right on time.

If you haven’t had a moment like this keep your eyes open for one. While you wait, don’t let your lack of experience keep you from gifting grace to someone else.

God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, 
the courage to change the things I can, 
and the wisdom to know the difference.

Jayne is a writer. On her free time she likes to be with her family hiking outdoors and traveling. New England is her home and place of birth. When asked what she wants to teach the world she replied, "Don't stop searching. Too many times, in my old life, I put my search aside for more 'important matters.' I didn't realize the thing I was searching for held what was most important; my soul purpose." Jayne works daily on improving her craft and at times can get down on herself, but her favorite morning mantra is "It's a new day." and that's what she strives to start with.
