The beginning of the week starts in a flurry of things to do, places to go and people to see. The middle of the week is the push to get to the end of the week and the end of the week promises at least some respite. It’s in this end, this temporary intermission between the week and the weekend that we can pause, if only for moment and appreciate the moments of grace the week brought us.
Grace is given not because we have done good works, but in order that we may be able to do them. ~St. Augustine
They were there, these moments of grace. They may have been fleeting and the noise and demands of life may have tried to drown them out, but they were there. They were in the strength to do what we thought we could not do, to accomplish what we thought impossible and even to enjoy what we were afraid we may miss.
So take a moment to look back on your week and recall these glimpses of grace as they wove themselves into the flurry of your life. These glimpses can be as simple as a gratitude list or as detailed as an animated story over a cup of coffee while children play.
If you blog, share a blog post containing your gratitude list, grace story, or picture from the week. You could even choose one from your archives showing the movements of God’s grace in your life. Link up here on Fridays for “Moments of Grace.” If you don’t blog, share your grace moments in the comments of Friday’s post.
Blog or no blog, let’s visit each other and listen to our grace stories, the mysterious and unique ways in which God moves and works and lives in each one of us.
