Day 11 Step 11 Grace

"You say grace before meals.
All right.
But I say grace before the play and the opera,
And grace before the concert and pantomime,
And grace before I open a book, 
And grace before sketching, painting,
Swimming, fencing, boxing, walking, playing, dancing;
And grace before I dip the pen in the ink."

G.K. Chesterton, from an early notebook (mid 1890's)

Can we get back to saying Grace in the daily grind.
He wants to be part of the dishes, the laundry, the carpool, 
The arguments, the decisions, the mistakes,
The chemo, the challenges, the doctor visits, the births,
Grace to cover us with a robe of righteousness,
Covering a multitude of sin.
The bride of Christ.
White as snow.
