Friday’s a free writing days.
Days to write for 5 minutes on a given word.
A word provided and hosted by the gypsy mama.
Today’s word is {graceful}

GO

How many times do I open up my hands begging for grace….
yet then clutching it and never passing it on?

How many times do I sit and clench my fists and refuse to open myself up?

Grace is more than just asking and receiving it.
Being graceful is more than just being full of grace.
Graceful is passing it on. Taking that full and emptying it out.

Being graceful is swaying to the blessings that the Lord is raining down upon me.
The lovely ones and the ugly ones.

Being graceful is
grace
raining
again
calling us to
eucharisteo.

I will never be an amazing dancer,
I will never be one that walks straight with this amazing sway.
But I can be graceful in the way that I walk the life he has given.
When I count the gifts that He has blessed me with
when I pass that onto those around me
that is graceful.

Graceful is swaying and spinning and moving through this amazing life and pouring out my overflowing cup onto others.

STOP

  1. YES! If we are receiving grace in fullest measure (1 Peter 1:2) and fullest measure is running over (Luke 6:38), then all that run-over goes out and over and blesses! I am still struggling to receive all that grace, frankly. Easier for me to give it than receive it.

  2. Oh My! I love that line “Graceful is swaying and spinning and moving through this amazing life and pouring out my overflowing cup onto others.” My heart’s cry! Thank you for sharing! Stopping by from FMF…
