Better Than "Thank you."


In the 1980's, I was blessed to have a stable job.

Once in a while, I invited to lunch a dear friend who was pursuing post-graduate studies. Since she was a full-time student, I was more than delighted to treat her. (No, it’s not to any fancy place. It’s just to McDonald’s or some pretty inexpensive fast food.)

One time after placing our orders, as I was getting my wallet, my friend gently held my arm and stopped me. “Please give me the pleasure of treating you.” I was deeply touched. I did not argue and let her pay.

When was the last time we had the pleasure of treating Jesus?

My name's Anna Maria! I publish a new blog post every Monday and Friday, two of my favorite days! If you want to learn more about my journey, my book "Touched by Grace: The Journey" will be released this summer through Amazon and Barnes & Noble.

In the meantime, check out my website touchedbygrace.today and subscribe for book updates and more blog posts! If you've been #tbgtoday, feel free to share your story of grace here.
