grace prevenient

"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."

G.K. Chesterton, "A Grace," Collected Poetry

I love that.

Grace before berry picking.

Grace before child rearing.

Grace before spending the morning with one of your favorite mentor/friend/mom people who wants to sit and drink tea and look into your eyes and know exactly what's in your heart (I love you, Kathy). 

Grace before blueberry popsicles.  

Every day.  Grace.
