Today I am linking up with Lisa Jo Baker (aka The Gypsy Mama) and folks across the world who participate in Five Minute Friday. Last week was my first time linking up, and I enjoyed it so much I thought I'd try it out again. The task is simple - set the clock for 5 minutes & type. No backtracking, no editing. Just write and see what comes out. Here goes...

When I think of someone who is graceful, I immediately picture a ballerina. She is the epitome of grace with her long, lean lines. She has the ability to leap across a stage and make it seem effortless. She pirouettes around the stage, never stopping, never getting dizzy. And she does it all in pointe slippers and a tutu.
If life is like a stage, I'm screwed.
My lines are often crooked. My steps are clumsy. While I often feel like I'm going round and round in circles, I get dizzy and just want to stop. (Nevermind that I wouldn't be caught dead in ballet slippers and a tutu!)
Thankfully, there's Jesus - Grace Giver.
The more I spend time with Him, the more graceful I become. My crooked lines become straight and I can lean on Him when I am dizzy and feel like falling.
When you hear the word "graceful," what do you imagine? Are you graceful?
