"All human nature vigorously resists grace because grace changes us and the change is painful."
~Flannery O'Connor

Wonderfully painful though! You know I grew up in the property that backs up to Andalusia - just a couple miles away, as the crow flies. A fascinating woman and writer.

She's a brilliant writer, and I actually found this quote comforting (though it's talking about pain). For me it means that change is an act of God's grace, and that is an encouraging thought!
