Listen to your life ...

"There is no event so commonplace but that God is present within it,

always hiddenly,

always leaving you room to recognize him or not to recognize him,

but all the more fascinatingly because of that,

all the more compellingly and hauntingly ...

So, listen to your life.

See it for the fathomless mystery that it is.

In the boredom and the pain of it 

no less than in the excitement and gladness:

touch, taste, smell your way to the holy and hidden heart of it

because in the last analysis

all moments are key moments,

and life itself is grace."

(Frederick Buechner)
