Don’t Be Afraid

To acknowledge the significance of this day and the events of 13 years ago:

The grace of God means something like:
Here is your life.
You might never have been, but you are,
because the party wouldn’t have been complete without you.
Here is the world.
Beautiful and terrible things will happen.
Don’t be afraid.
I am with you.
~Frederick Buechner
in Wishful Thinking and later in Beyond Words

  1. Buechner has such a refreshing way of ‘telling it like it is.’ This is a great meditation and one that I will be sharing with family and friends.
    Thank you, Emily.
