a simple thought to start the morning

I had two slogans to guide me. One was: “Figure it out” is not a good slogan. And the other was: Ask and allow: ask God, and allow grace in.  ~Anne Lamott

After a long day yesterday, I went to bed with a heavy heart.  Hoping to end the day on a note of peace, I opened my Nook and clicked on Salon.  Hurrah!  An article by Anne Lamott appeared–God always knows how to cheer me up.

As I began to drift off, my eyes stumbling over words, I came upon a small but powerful statement:  allow grace in.  Allow grace in.  This morning, I arise holding that sentiment gently in my hands.  I’m taking it to work with me then to my Just Be class. I’ll leave it in my pocket just in case I need it when my daughter and I return home this evening.  And as I end another day, I’ll be grateful for the small gift those three words offer.

Allow grace in.   Thanks, Anne.
