It's Five Minute Friday and I'm linking up with The Gypsy Mama. We write for five minutes flat on a word given to us by Lisa-Jo. The word for this week is ...GRACEFUL.
As long as I can remember, I've always been trying and striving.
I want to be graceful.
I want to be able to speak and move and do things right.
I love to watch dancers. They move their arms and bodies to the music in a way that is so rhythmic and elegant.
As a child, I was awkward. I had the tendency to fall down and even up the stairs. My mom sent me to dance school to learn some grace.
I've always loved to hear inspiring speakers. Their words seem to flow and invigorate and motivate. I listened to tapes in my car on my way to work for years. I attended speaker workshops and became a Dale Carnegie teacher helper. I would give example speeches.
I love to read books. Authors who seem to use words to inspire and teach. I work on my eBook but it takes such effort. The words don't always come so easily.
I seem to always strive but not come to the finish line of my perception. But then I remember something.
His grace is enough.
I am accepted and loved by my Savior. It's not about me always striving and trying. It's resting in His love and yes ...His grace.
Blessings and love,
