I’m reading through The Rare Jewel of Christian Contentment.

Haven’t picked up a Puritan book for a long time. I’m really glad I did, though. One line I read has stuck in my head.

“It is the nature of grace to turn water into wine.”

He’s specifically referring to Grace turning the water of affliction into wine of joy. But I was thinking about a wider application, how it’s the nature of Grace to chance the very essence of whatever it touches into something beautiful and intoxicatingly joyful.

Thanks, Mr. Burroughs.
