“…all moments are key moments, and life itself is grace.”
This may be my site, but Frederick Buechner said that. He was always saying really beautiful and profound and deeply true things. I like people like that.
His words remind me to pay attention to my life. To look for the sacred in all these everyday mundane moments. His words remind me to look for God even when it feels like he’s a long way off.
So that’s what I’m doing here… trying to pay attention and write it all down. Life is fleeting and a gift. Sure it’s sometimes excruciating — a complex and messy mix of pain and joy — but it is still a gift.
And God is still here with us, even in the mess.
I write so I don’t miss my life. I write to understand it. I write to train my eyes to better see Him even in – especially in – the broken places. I’m glad you’re here.
