Everything is Grace. . .Everything — 10 Comments

  1. I love the quote you have shared as I had never read it before. It’s powerful. And so are these questions >> “Would our hearts love well if we didn’t know the pinches, pricks, and tears of suffering?” and “Would we care to know God so well without the soul-thorns?” I think not. It truly is all grace, His grace.

    • St. Therese of Lisieux’s autobiography as a fifth grader taught me how to pray – and showed me an intimate, alive relationship with God. It was life-changing. I love that her words are still impactful over five decades later.

  2. So beautiful today! Your words brought tears to my eyes as God continues to lift my eyes to see those grace gifts too. Thank you so much for sharing.

    • Bless you, Bettie! Praying our eyes are opened this week and don’t miss a thing He has for us!

  3. Beautiful remembrances of God’s grace to us – whether in joy or “the pinches, pricks, and tears of suffering or soul-thorns” that draw us closer to His heart, Maryleigh.

  4. Beautiful, Maryleigh, how your words just breathe life into my soul today. I have a prayer of St. Therese of Lisieux’s sitting on my desk gifted to me by a sweet friend. Such a blessing one life can be. All is GRACE!
