Here is the world.
Beautiful and terrible things will happen.
Don’t be afraid.
I am with you.
Nothing can ever separate us.
It’s for you I created the universe.
I love you.
There’s only one catch:
the gift of grace can be yours only if you reach out and take it.
Maybe being able to reach out and take it is a gift too.”

(because it’s been a while since I quote-blogged to assert the awesomeness of Mr. Buechner.)
