The grace of God means something like this. Here is your life. You might never have been, but you are because the party wouldn’t have been complete without you. 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.
–Frederick Buechner–Wishful Thinking: A Seeker’s ABC (New York: Harper Collins, 1993), p. 39
“It is not that you feel love and then say, ‘I love you’, but that until you say ‘I love you’, you have not fully loved because it is the essence of love to speak itself—to make itself heard and to make itself hearers.” — Frederick Buechner @iamfujimura pic.twitter.com/8YOc3YIr0D
