“You can have the other words – chance, luck, coincidence, serendipity. I’ll take grace. I don’t know what it is exactly, but I’ll take it.” ~ Mary Oliver
While I was trying to think about the energy of April the word grace popped into my head and honestly I questioned it. Grace? I don’t want grace. What can I do with grace? I don’t even really know what it means? What am I supposed to write about grace?
As I started to accept grace (because it wouldn’t go away) and I allowed it to just be, just holding the word in my heart and in my mind, gave me a feeling of calm, of rest, of stepping aside and allowing a force greater than me to take care of me and somehow I knew that in grace all is well.I don’t fully know what it means, but maybe grace is asking, let go of all the worries and stress and rest in grace, in the calm and in the knowing that you’re being taken care of. That every thing is unfolding in divine timing. That being stressed does not solve anything. That holding on to things doesn’t allow growth and movement – that opening up and allowing grace, amazing things will show up. So even though I don’t fully know what grace means right now, nor why it popped into my head and took such a strong hold of me, I do know that as I let go, allow and accept, as I believe more and trust more – grace – will unfold and reveal herself. I know that there is a power greater than us and trusting that it is always holding, loving and guiding us is maybe a way of being aligned with grace.As the month of April unfolds so will grace she will unfold and show the power of her miracles, magic and gifts.So I’ve come to realize so far, that the energy of Grace is here to remind us that we are never alone, that the gifts of the universe are always in front of us, always gracing us, always unfolding for us. Revealing the indescribable deliciousness of knowing a deeper truth, all we need to do is accept them, believe, trust, and know that we are loved beyond measure and – allow… Grace!
