A wonderful speculation about grace


We think of grace arriving like an ambulance, just-in-time delivery, an invisible divine cavalry cresting a hill of troubles, a bolt of jazz from the glittering horn of the Creator, but maybe it lives in us and is activated by illness of the spirit. Maybe we're loaded with grace. Maybe we're stuffed with the stuff. Maybe it's stitched into our DNA, a fifth ingredient in the deoxyribonucleic acidic soup.

  1. I like this one too! I'm so glad I found this blog. :)

  2. Yes, I was amazed when I found this one. I love the idea of being "stuffed" with grace - that it's somehow even part of our DNA!

    I'm glad you made your way here too, Rose. Good to have you around!

    I also have an interfaith meditation blog at Meditation Matters that might interest you!

  3. Amazing, Ellie! You are a gift!

    BTW, I am giving you the Arte y Pico award, which Fran bestowed upon me. It was hard to decide WHICH of you blogs to choose, but this is often the most visually beautiful.

  4. It is so very kind of you to say so, Jan. I have, indeed, tried to make it beautiful!

    Thanks so much!
