Grace upon grace upon grace

I keep learning over and over again about the grace of God and the constant invitation that is being made to me (and to all of us) to come home again.  Like the prodigal son....

This week I wrote this in my journal:

I spend as much time
running away
as I do looking for

I spend as much time
hiding from
as I do searching

I spend as much time
as I do feeling

I spend as much time
as I do listening

I spend as much time
as I do emptying

And when I come back - looking, searching, feeling, listening, emptying
there you are waiting

This is what grace upon grace upon grace means to me today.
