Passage on page 65:
Sometimes Creator blinks. Sometimes
She is not looking at me. Those instances can feel
really, really long some days, but what’s going on
Is that Creator is showing Her trust in me. She’s
letting me know that I have the tools to cope with
things, that I’ve learned enough in my walk with
Her to walk gracefully through those moments
when She blinks. And that’s when I should blink,
too. Close my eyes and breathe, feel the unceasing
current underneath everything, surrender to it,
then open my eyes again to possibility and walk
That’s how I learn to be graceful. Full of grace.
In the blink of an eye.
