“Grace has no borders. Love breaks through, and – and as Jesus said of the church – the gates of hell will not prevail against it… seize THOSE moments, the true, the pure, the lovely” (Hansen 43-44).
It’s March 2. School has been in session for over 8 weeks since Christmas Break with very little days off. We may be tired. We may be weary. We may be unenthusiastic. It’s not easy at this point in the school year to allow love to break through. It’s not easy at this point to allow love to protect us from the times we become angry or offended. Yet those moments where love breaks through are evident, if we keep our eyes open. We need to keep our eyes open so that we see grace in action in the lives of our students, our families, our faculty, our staff, and our school. We need to keep our eyes open so that we see grace in action in our own lives. Let go of the moments of anger and offense and seize those moments of grace.
