The Beautiful Mystery…

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

This quote perfectly captures what my experience of Grace has always been. It is that invisible ‘something’ that picks us up out of a place of darkness, and silently and seamlessly puts us down gently in a space filled with light.

I have often wondered how ‘Grace’ happens… Is it based on need? Can it happen only when the conditions are right? Do we earn it, or is it a simple and spontaneous ‘no stings attached’ gift from spirit?

I may never fully understand the mechanism of Grace, but that’s okay. Just knowing that it’s out there swirling about in the universe, reminds me that it can arrive at any moment… Such a sweet knowing to have.
