I'm open: Finding grace in sports and life
Grace follows us around, but sometimes we have to get into the right position to receive it.
In the poet Chaucer’s day—that is, 14th-century England—April came with shoots, buds, and singing birds, the air tinged with the sweet breath of zephyr winds. It was then that folks rose from a long winter sleep with thoughts of pilgrimage on their minds. In merry fellowship men and women journeyed to the shrine of Thomas Becket in Canterbury to thank the martyr and seek his continuing protection. On the way the pilgrims told stories and welcomed a stop at the Tabard Inn.
