Grace



Grace doesn't always come in ways we would expect. When we experience an act of kindness from someone right at the moment we're in need of it, we know it’s grace... 

But there is also the kind of grace that comes from being broken open. This can mean illness, loss, confusion, despair… Sometimes we aren't willing to change until we've been brought to our knees...

When grace is fierce, it smashes through our denial. Before grace, we are captive to fear. We mask it with behaviors like pride, arrogance, rigidness… After grace, we soften, become more open-hearted, and relinquish defeating behaviors...
