Linking up today with Five Minute Friday where you write for 5 minutes about the word for today and then publish without editing or perfecting.
that's not a word I would ever have chosen to describe myself.
Prone to stick my foot in my mouth
Not knowing when to shut up
Tripping over my own two feet
Those words more accurately describe me.
But then, almost 5 years ago, I had the word grace tattooed on my inner right wrist.
And something changed...
I'm still clumsy
I'm still prone to stick my foot in my mouth
I still don't know when to shut up
I still trip over my own two feet
But, then I glance at my wrist
and I see that word
And I am reminded
that He extends grace to me
that He extends grace to others
that others extend grace to me
that I extend grace to others
that I MUST extend grace to myself
Yes, that does describe me
even when my foot is in my mouth
or I've tripped over my own two feet for the umpteen zillionth time
full of grace
giving myself grace
What about you? What do you have to say about GRACEFUL in 5 minutes? If you link up, let me know. I'd love to read your post.
