Grace comes into the soul, as the morning sun into the world; first a dawning; then a light;
and at last the sun in his full and excellent brightness.
I read this quote from Thomas Adams on the blog Barnstorming this morning
and promptly wrote it down in my gratitude journal.
I am grateful for grace,
for these words of Thomas Adams, though I don't know who he is,
for the turning of the earth,
for the changing of the seasons,
for the rising and setting of the sun,
for the clouds breaking up after a long day of rain,
for the marvel of the universe.
