Grace

Linking with Charlotte Spiritual Sunday  at and Laura at Faith Filled Fridays



"Sometimes grace works like water wings when you feel you're sinking." Anne Lamott

I had some free time today so I went to this open field and stood near the small pond, watching the solitary swan and the lone blueheron.

It was crazy windy. I loved the feel of the wind whipping around me as I listened for the whisper of His gentleness. He didn't disappoint. 

I didn't care that my hair was totally wonky or even that it started to rain softly. I didn't care about anything. I just soaked in the calm...

And then the bluey (blueheron) spread his incredible wings and flew off. I think before he did, he turned to me and winked. 

To me....that moment was Grace....gentle trusting I'm here kind of grace. 

I knew as I watched the bluey fly away.....no matter what happens....it'll all be ok.

You gave me wings so I can fly.....Grace. I'm nothing without you.
