Grace? Thank you Anne Lamott

From Anne Lamott’s book Traveling Mercies, some words on grace:

“… the force that infuses our lives and keeps letting us off the hook.  It is unearned love —- the love that goes before, that greets us on the way.  It’s the help you receive when you have no bright ideas left, when you are empty and desperate and have discovered that your best thinking and your 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 as started and embarrassed and eventually grateful as you are to be there.”
