Grace is one of my two favorite words. It says so much with only five letters.
Grace is intriguing. It warms our hearts and feeds our souls. We yearn for it. We know we don’t deserve it. And we know we aren’t powerful enough to create it ourselves.
I’m reading The Unmistakable Touch of Grace by Cheryl Richardson. It is touching me where I am. Isn’t that what you like for a book to do?
I think I’m relearning a lesson I thought I’d finally mastered. (Ha!)
” Surrender is the key that unlocks the door to grace.”
Richardson also shares a lot about how AlAnon helped her in her spiritual journey. I can identify with that. AlAnon is probably the most genuine groups I’ve ever been a part of. When you know the history behind AA and AlAnon you realize that its founding was no accident.
Look for the synchronicities in your day. Be ready, “be open and receptive to the power of grace in you life now.”
