Uncommon Grace

I had the good fortune of visiting a local college campus yesterday for their International Day celebration. At the booth representing China, there was a kind gentleman who was writing names in Chinese Calligraphy. He took the syllables of each name and translated them into characters. Each character represented something different when translated back to English. My son's name returned as "Hero" and my daughter's was "Beautiful Girl." I wasn't really expecting anything profound for my name, so it was a nice surprise and so encouraging to hear my characters translated back to me as:

Uncommon Grace

Uncommon Grace is uniquely beautiful and so is the calligraphy.

Have an uncommonly graceful day.
