Maybe just enough for today...

The following quote appeared when I flipped the page of my calendar of quotes from women saints this morning.

"The grace of even wishing to belong to God must come from himself." (Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton)

I've been thinking a lot about grace, and the things that contrast with it this week.

This quote is oddly encouraging to me this morning. Even the desire to belong to Jesus is a gift of grace.

That just might be enough to hold on to today.
