life is grace

. . . who can say for sure about anything?  And yet there are some things I would be willing to bet maybe even my life on.

That life is grace, for instance–the givenness of it, the fathomlessness of it, the endless possibilities of its becoming transparent to something extraordinary beyond itself. That–as I picked up somewhere in Jung and whittled into the ash stick I use for tramping around through the woods sometimes — vocatus atque non vocatus Deus aderit, which I take to mean that in the long run, whether you call on him or don’t call on him, God will be present with you. – Frederick Buechner, Now and Then
