All moments

Listen to your life. See it for the fathomless mystery that it is. In the boredom and pain of it, no less than in the excitement and gladness…because in the last analysis all moments are key moments and life itself is grace.


Quote: Frederick Buechner.   

A clean slate 

Life is grace. Sleep is forgiveness. The night absolves. Darkness wipes the slate clean, not spotless to be sure, but clean enough for another day’s chalking.

Frederick Buechner– The Alphabet of Grace.


Where our deep gladness and the world’s deep hunger meet, we hear a further call.

Grace given


 ‘…can never get but only by given…’  

Grace is a thing divine and illusive. Whether or not we long for it most of us need it. More often than not its presence is only recognized after the fact. 

How to describe grace – a mother’s loving touch, the flight of a hawk or the quiet run of a doe. 

There is a sense of gratitude when grace is given. While having to endure challenging times in life, grace can be the blanket that enfolds us with comfort and protection. 

Might now be the time it is given? In this world’s fragile moment, can we be opened for the gift of grace and the practice of gratitude?
