Real life is a gift

"Christianity is not primarily a moral code but a grace-laden mystery; it is not essentially a philosophy of love but a love affair; it is not keeping rules with clenched fists but receiving a gift with open hands."

~Brennan Manning, The Ragamuffin Gospel

*sigh* 'a grace-laden mystery'.

Isn't that simply beautiful?
