A Moment of Grace

I heard that phrase recently and I wondered exactly what it meant. What is a moment of grace and when do we realize it's there? Is there an inkling of it's onset, or is the ah-ha only after it passes? A moment later; a day; never. Was it at the grocery store when I found the voice to ask a young mom with a crying baby if she wanted to take my place in line? Is it in the unsung everyday making of lunches and folding of laundry; or is it found only in the extraordinary?

Does God have to be the giver of grace? Or is it a gift we give eachother? Or a gift we bestow upon ourselves? Can grace be found when we are alone?

Something to think about...
