grace: revisited


Earlier this year, I chose the word grace to be my word of 2013. I want to show more grace to others, as well as myself. It's hard to believe it's been almost six months since I settled on the word, grace, for this year.

I have certainly learned a thing or two about grace, but I still have a long way to go. One area of struggle has been showing grace to others. My natural instinct is to hold people accountable, to let them know I am keeping tabs. But that isn't fruitful. If anything it hinders a relationship, instead of allowing it to flourish.

Being pregnant has made me more emotional than usual (hello hormones), but I don't think it always makes me more willing to extend grace.

As I await this little one's arrival, I am giving myself my more grace. I often push myself, but at nearly 40 weeks pregnant, I allow myself to stop and rest, take naps or just sit under the ceiling fan and put my feet up.
