Just a Reminder

Even within the seemingly most unacceptable and painful situation is concealed a deeper good, and within every disaster is contained the seed of grace. Throughout history, there have been women and men who, in the face of great loss, illness, imprisonment, or impending death, accepted the seemingly unacceptable and thus found “the peace that passeth all understanding.
Acceptance of the unacceptable is the greatest source of grace in this world.
—Eckhart Tolle, Stillness Speaks

From my tumblr blog. Must have this tattooed on the palm of my hand :-). XOXO

Ah yes, "the peace that passeth all understanding,,,"
One of my favorite Bible passages.
One that I'm always wishing in hindsight that I'd remembered sooner.

"acceptance of the unacceptable",,so hard,,,but I have also witnessed it, and been amazed by it.
Seeds of grace indeed, thanks Annie!
