checkmate by graceI once heard it said that Chess is the only form of art in which composition and performance are combined in a single action.

This is also true of life.

Each decision we make is improvisation, and composition. Each has the potential for great beauty.

Like chess, the beautiful is often seen in sacrifice and the surprise.

Unlike chess however, victory is not in conquest but in our captivity to a greater love. To find ourselves checkmated by grace.
