God's Grace

But to each one of us
grace has been given
as Christ apportioned it.
Ephesians 4:6-8
Grace is “the force that infuses our lives and keeps letting us off the hook. 
It is unearned love - the love that goes before, that meets us on the way.
 It’s the help you received when you have no bright ideas left, when you are empty and 
desperate and have discovered that your best thinking 
and most charming charm have failed you.
 Grace is the light  or electricity or juice or breeze that takes you
 from that isolated place and puts you with others 
who are startled and embarrassed and eventually grateful, 
as you are to be there.”
