THE ABUNDANCE OF GRACE ~ reflections & quotations ~15.00
From the Introduction:
When we feel contended, we are living in grace. When we feel blessed, it is grace that blesses us. And when we despair, it is grace that gently holds us. Grace reaches through our loneliness to let us know that we are not alone. Like a shaft of light in the forest, grace may appear as an unmerited gift. We don’t have to feel worthy of it.

Each little book contains 56 pages of inspiring passages to fill your heart with grace, handsewn with assorted Japanese paper covers.

Grace comes into the soul,
As the morning sun into the world;
First a dawning, then a light;
And at last the sun
In its full excellent brightness.
Grace is given not because we have done good works,
But in order that we may be able to do them.
