What does graciousness have to do with refinement, anyway? When I think of refinement I think of social grace, of poise, and of good taste. I think of a woman with confidence that she doesn't need to shove in your face, of someone sure enough of themselves to be genuinely kind. Refinement is honestly addressing your rough edges and working to smooth them; it's shedding the unnecessary to focus on the important.
Gracious living is all about simplicity of character and demeanor. Gracious living is knowing your purpose and living it. Gracious living is character refined.
