#1069 Stand there shining

I do not understand the mystery of grace -- only that it meets us where we are and does not leave us where it found us.

Gratitude, not understanding, is the secret to joy and equanimity.

I don't want something special.  I want something beautifully plain.

Perfectionism is the voice of the oppressor.

Lighthouses don’t go running all over an island looking for boats to save; they just stand there shining.

 Quotes by Anne Lamott

- When have you experienced the mystery and power of grace?
- What have you valued as beautifully plain?
- To what extent have you tried to be a shining lighthouse?
- What gives you the power within?
