Gratitude, Grace & Joy

“Grace, it means ‘favor,’ from the Latin gratia. It connotes a free readiness. A free and ready favor. That’s grace. It is one thing to choose to take the grace offered at the cross. But to choose to live as one filling with His grace? Choosing to fill with all that He freely gives and full live — with glory and grace and God?” (One Thousand Gifts, 18)

Ann Voskamp speaks of the relationship between giving thanks, grace and joy. She does so in a way that I long to be able to do. Her words about grace midst an ordinary life are why I started this #write31days. Her challenge to live a fuller life where what we have is enough, is speaking to me on a soul-level.
