Wednesday, 24 October 2007 - Grace

Dear God:

Today, I am thankful for grace.

When I pray for faith, I receive gifts of grace.

Not just the awesome grace that intercedes during major crises. But the everyday variety that covers me, follows me during ordinary moments. Like while I sweep the floor or fold the laundry or chop onions.

As swimmers dare
to lie face to the sky

and water bears them,

as hawks rest upon air

and air sustains them,

so would I learn to attain

freefall, and float

into Creator Spirit's deep embrace,

knowing no effort earns

that all-surrounding grace.

~Denise Levertov

For this blessing, I am grateful.
