grace

I couldn't sleep.
I lay in bed tossing and turning.
Jacob wrestling with his angel,
Begging a name.

A guarantee of safe passage,

Two choices lay ahead:
Spend the day as I had spent the night,
Or get myself on the mountain 
And walk it off.

It is utterly comical that I can spend the morning hours worrying about "what I shall eat and drink and wherewithal I shall be clothed" when, in those same short hours, Life is preparing something so breathtakingly beautiful that just witnessing it brought me to my knees.  Grace.  What is there to worry about?  To be anxious about?
