My moment of grace

I can't think of one moment I have experienced grace, but when I think of grace, I always picture problems being solved. If my sister and I were in an argument, my mother would usually intrude, eliminating the fist fight that may have ensued. In E.E Ford, we learned about bridges and walkways that collapsed due to weak links. Despite the tragic collapses, these failures have led to progress and success to ensure safer and more efficient bridges and walkways. Problems derived from mistakes, evil, revenge, hate, or even too much love are alleviated by grace. Grace is the answer to our problems and it is a source for our human desires to be quenched. Sometimes we don't even realize that we also demonstrate grace through guiding a friend through a difficult time, being a leader, not a follower, and helping someone build their confidence.
