A spiritual path is often a lonely one. Is it that God has abandoned me on my journey, or perhaps more likely, I have failed to recognize the company and aid of grace He provides through those closest to me? All thing and especially all people in life are sources of God’s wisdom if I am desperate (humble) enough to accept them.
The food rejected by at the dinner table becomes a feast on the streets.
Not all grace may be bestowed directly, but through the love of others, so as to remind me that God, not I, is it’s source.
