What Is Grace?

"What is grace?" I asked God. And He said, "All that happens." Then He added, when I looked perplexed, "Could not lovers say that every moment in their Beloved's arms was grace? Existence is my arms, though I well understand how one can turn away from me until the heart has wisdom."
