“I wish grace and healing were more abracadabra kind of things. Also, that delicate silver bells would ring to announce grace’s arrival. But no, it’s clog and slog … on the floor, in the silence, in the dark”~ Anne Lamott
I can still hear my parents saying, “No one ever said life would be easy.”
Considering what they went through as children in war-time Germany, I really didn’t have too much to complain about…
I’ve had my share of troubles in life – we all have.
Some worse than others
loss of loved ones
anxiety over money
struggles of conscience
and the list goes on.
But through it all there are moments of respite…
we catch a glimpse of light
we receive the comfort of human touch
we are gifted with words of encouragement
and we cling to hope.
It’s true, life isn’t always easy, in fact it’s mostly not easy, but is it worth it?
for the lessons learned
the friendships forged
the knowing that we are all connected – sometimes needing, sometimes needed
and always held in the embrace of grace.

May you know grace in times of trouble
