CALM THOUGHTS...............................

For as long as I can remember
I have been searching for Grace.

It has been right here all along...not something to be plucked up somewhere along this ever-winding trail we call life.

But right here~~just waiting to be found.....With a racing mind it will forever elude me. A still mind offers up the prize.  Calm thoughts always have a beginning and an end.

It is the space between the end and the next beginning where Grace is offered.

I pay attention.....
I find Grace........

Have a beautiful day.
