Grace

“I do not at all understand the mystery of grace – only that it meets us where we are but does not leave us where it found us.” – Anne Lamott

Every one of us has challenges and difficulties, some big, many small. Some people have the grace not to show it as much as others, to quietly move through unshaken. We can’t control “what” is handed to us, but we can control “how” we go through it. We let the same situations and people get to us again and again, expecting them to change. When we change, suddenly the “what” isn’t as important as the “how.” I guess that’s accepting the grace that is there for each one of us.

“Everything that slows us down and forces patience, everything that sets us back into the slow circles of nature, is a help. Gardening is an instrument of grace.” – May Sarton

  1. Lovely thoughts. Acceptance of life as it really is rather than how we might wish it to be is such a gift of grace 🙂

  2. Indeed. Everything in life is dependent on how we react to it and deal with it.
