Nature seeks to serve itself
Grace lives to appreciate and find joy
May my life embody grace
In the movie Tree of Life, Terrence Mallick’s character Mrs. O’Brien opens the movie saying, “The Nun’s taught us there were two ways through Life, the way of nature and the way of grace.”
This year I wanted to search out the ways of grace in my life and the ways I hope to offer grace to others. Grace, according to the movie accepts the things in life that nature struggles with. Grace is content to be. Nature, is looking for self gratification and for others to tend to it’s needs. Grace finds happiness, or at least peace, even in the things that are disturbing and Grace understand that there is a world of joy and contentment, if we will let it in.
