Unexpected Grace   Leave a comment

“Grace is that force that infuses our lives, that keeps letting us off the hook. It is unearned and gratuitous love; the love that goes before, that greets us on the way. It’s the help you receive when you have no bright ideas left, when you are empty and desperate and have discovered that your best thinking and most charming charm have failed you; grace is the light or electricity or juice or breeze that takes you from that isolated place and puts you with others who are as startled and embarrassed and eventually grateful as you are to be there. Everything feels crazy, but on small patches of earth all over, I can see just as much messy grace as ever… It meets us where we are but does not leave us where it found us.’” Anne Lamont (from “Plan B”)
