Grace, Joy

Life Itself Is Grace


Frederick Buechner says, “All moments are key moments, and life itself is grace.” So true! Every moment of life is full of astounding possibility. In just one moment, a butterfly can flit from one bloom to another, a cardinal can light on the bird feeder outside my kitchen window, my seven year old granddaughter can wrap her little arms around me.

Life can be whatever we make of it. It can be rife with grief or covered with chaos. But life can also be grace, pure and lovely grace. That was God’s plan for our lives from the first moment in Creation.

“In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth… And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good.” (Genesis 1:1, 31)

And so on this bright, sunny day I plan to spend each moment with mindfulness, acknowledging that life it self is grace.

And for each of you I pray that grace and peace will be yours in abundance through the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord. (2 Peter 1:2)

  1. Kathy–it was so great to hear from you today. I so appreciate your contribution to my book. After reading your post on Flowing Peace, I thought you might enjoy this book, “Letters by a Modern Mystic” by Frank C. Laubach. I don’t know if you have read it, but it has greatly touched my life.


I would love to hear your comments.
