Welcome to the hop!
So this month we were supposed to take Action! I was a tad stumped for a bit. I'd already been doing some things and I didn't want to just write what I'd already started. So I was trying to think what I could do to have more grace, be more graceful, something! At that point I realized I had an idea of what "grace" means, but not a real definite idea. So my one little thing was a word study. It wasn't a huge thing. I just looked it up in a couple of dictionaries and my Vine's Expository Dictionary of New Testament Words. Grace means a lot of things! So instead of writing the whole thing out here, I chose a few of my favorites that were kind of what I had in mind for my word when I chose it.
My very favorite, the one I think best fits the idea I had was from Vine's. It's one of the meanings of the Greek word (pronounced charis) that is translated "grace":
That which bestows or occasions pleasure, delight, or causes favorable regard; it is applied to beauty or gracefulness of person, act or speech.
The friendly disposition from which the kindly act proceeds, graciousness, lovingkindness, goodwill generally.
I like those.From the dictionary my favorites were:
Beauty or harmony of motion, form, manner, or proportion.
Favor or service freely rendered; goodwill.
The act of showing or granting such favor.
I think the study has helped me with my word. It was fun to look it up, write it out and all that lovely stuff. :-) Here's what my pages look like.
