Life is Grace

The funeral of a little boy is today. The boy had cancer, and he is the son of one of Candice's professors. I am acquainted with neither the boy nor the family, but simply knowing is enough to make a person consider life... if nothing else, it is a gift.
"Humanly speaking... who can say for sure about anything? And yet there are some things I would be willing to bet maybe even my life on. That life is grace, for instance--the givenness of it, the fathomlessness of it, the endless possibilities of its becoming transparent to something extraordinary beyond itself."--Frederick Buechner, Now and Then
