Karma


"At the center of all religions is the idea of Karma. You know, what you put out comes back to you: an eye for an eye...Along comes this idea called Grace to upend all that...Love interrupts, if you like, the consequences of your actions, which in my case is very good news indeed...I'd be in big trouble if Karma was going to be my judge. I'm holding out for Grace. I'm holding out that Jesus took my sins onto the Cross."

-Bono, quoted in World, August 6, 2005

Bono is every thinking-woman's dreamboat! If HE struggles with bad Kharma, the rest of us are up the creek!

What a wonderful, wonderful quote. I KNEW I liked that man!

Thanks for sharing it with us. May we all be sold out for grace and the only One Who can provide it.

I went to a concert tonight that consisted of an amazingly talented HOMESCHOOL family. It was nothing short of amazing. I can't keep it to myself. Way too good for that! Please take a listen and Facebook me what you think. All I can manage to say right now about it is: "WOW!!!!!!!"

Please listen, you will be blessed by what you hear:

Grace! Grace is more awesome than words!

I don't know anything about Bono, but after that quote, I might just have to find out.

Kind Regards,
