Amazing Grace

A few days of the week I hear Mike playing on his chanter “Amazing Grace”, he’s been playing this one since I met him.  Today I’m wondering what Grace really means to me.   Do I know grace?  I know the phrase “by grace you can be saved through faith…it it sthe gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast.”    We are all offered forgiveness, this I am thankful for.  None of us are perfect.  Especially me.  So I guess God’s grace if surely for me.  “Amazing grace!  How sweet the sound, that saved a wretch like me!  I once was lost but now am found, was blind but now I see.  This song was one of my Mema’s favorite songs.  My back is feeling much better today, maybe I’m just in a better place.

Good Morning, Derek!

Glad to hear that your back is doing better for you. After your last entry about "If you don't have anything good to say", I thought, "Oh gosh, Derek IS in pain." Hopefully the rest of the week will bring you more and more relief.

A few years ago , I heard an interesting story about how Amazing Grace came to be written, unfortunately I can not recall the details.
