“The grace of God means something like: Here is your life. You might never have been, but you are because the party wouldn’t have been complete without you. Here is the world. Beautiful and terrible things will happen. Don’t be afraid. I am with you. Nothing can ever separate us. It’s for you I created the universe. I love you. There’s only one catch. Like any other gift, the gift of grace can be yours only if you’ll reach out and take it. Maybe being able to reach out and take it is a gift too.”
~ Frederick Buechner
The party was supposed to be a surprise but now you know. All of your friends are already there. The only thing left for you to do is show up. It’s going to be the party of a lifetime. First thing’s first though. Somebody wants a hug.
