Saving Grace


After all these battles,
all these victories and losses,
there is a saving grace, a love;
a canteen offered to a friend or a foe;
a sharing of the cool water of compassion,
a caring at the open door;
opening beyond words,
beyond our own world,
where we are the open door;
where we are the cool water;
where we are the saving grace.
Where we are.
You and I.
We are that.

Saving Grace, an original oil painting by Michael Douglas Jones

  1. So often, dear one, you have been my saving grace in the small hours; in the dark and quiet morning, after I've displayed my heart for all to see...you are a comfort...you are grace and you are artistry.
    Thank you for sharing your amazing talents.
