Good Morning Friday. Five Minute Friday! Fingers itching, coffee steaming. Let’s do this.
Today’s Word is “Graceful”. Ready. Set. GO!
I’ve never felt “Graceful“.
In a crowd. Around people. In my own skin.
My skin was never good enough. That’s how it felt. Sometimes, that’s how it feels.
Sometimes I look in the mirror and feel like I simply missed it.
That “graceful” portion of life.
That “graceful” portion I see in photos of friends.
Then my husband tells me I’m graceful. He says it with sincerity.
I don’t believe it, however, his words linger. Just a little.
Could I be?
What really is graceful?
Am I looking to be Graceful from some worldly viewpoint?
Am I looking to be Graceful from the viewpoint of my God?
Loving with grace.
Am I teaching and showing my son what it means to be “Graceful”?
The awkward feeling strips away.
The crowd. The people.
My skin shows imperfections that I can see beauty in.
Because it’s the skin that was specifically designed and created by the Creator for me.
To hold this body together.
It’s time to stop waiting.
Time to allow His grace to fill me, and overflow through me.
Time to truly accept His grace.
Allow it to heal and cover my scars.
To let me loose from this cocoon and be the beautiful butterfly.
According to His standards, His will, His Grace.
