cooperation four icon 300WHow do you keep the magic of living vibrant while operating in a mundane, get-it-done world?

One way is to invite grace in. To me, saying grace does that. It invites grace into whatever you are about to do. That opens you up for creativity, serendipity and possibilities...all key contributors to excellence. Saying grace doesn't have to be prayer per se. It can be a simple pause to re-calibrate.

I like this quote from G.K. Chesterton:

"You say grace before meals. All right. But I say grace before the concert and the opera, and grace before the play 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."

Another way to experience grace is as a pause to shift perspective. Why not embrace Einstein's perspective? He says,

"There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle."

A moment of grace can be enough to shift from the mundane to the miraculous.
