Have You Met Lady Grace?….


Let me tell you about Lady Grace.
  Fine one that arrives wearing filigree lace,
Everything done with Grace always changes the race,
When she comes, she must surely leave a trace,
For your outward expression will certainly change pace,
Reflecting inward harmony of soul around your space.

Wields a lot of power, she does; our Lady Grace,
Her power consumes, you wish not to be a disgrace,
She can shape-shift just in case,
You ponder how she will fit into your space.

Grace is not blind even if she keeps a straight face,
As she watches your scramble from low grass to trophy case.
She is clothed in dignity with warm human face,
Encouraging arms she extends to thee embrace.

Should you ever seek to replace a false face
A bone deep desire to erase can take place
For there is always a meeting place
To invite the mighty Lady Grace
And she will touch base
In your living space.

  1. Hello Jacqueline,

    There’s a beautiful coincidence with the timing of your post and the conversation that I had with my work colleague a few hours ago.

    He asked me “Do you know the difference between Grace and Mercy? He then told me:

    Grace, is receiving the undeserved, while Mercy, is not receiving the deserved.

    I pondered over it and it made sense. The grace of God is so reassuring, even though it is most times undeserved.

    Yes, I have met Lady Grace many times in my life, she is so graceful and I bowed my head graciously as I greeted her. 🙂

    Thank you for sharing this lovely post, have a fantastic weekend!

    1. I woke up this morning and all that came to my mind was Grace after thank you Jesus for a new day. It is truly undeserved and we should appreciate Lady Grace every day she passes by 🙂 Have a lovely homey weekend too with the Lagos happenings. I am thoroughly jealous!!
