On Eating An Elephant

Join me in the Five Minute Friday Challenge hosted by Lisa-Jo Baker. Participants write for 5 minutes with no editing, no over thinking, and no backtracking. This week’s word is: Grace.


The piles pile up.

The mess gathers round.

I am tired – at the most inconvenient of times.

The pinching nerves in my shoulders keep a steady stream of ache in my arms.

I feel like I have been served more than I can chew some days.

And yet…

This is all part of His plan.

He has allowed these things.

He has blessed me with these things.

I do not mean to complain.

I want to enjoy what I have.

To live.

Fully alive.

My kind of adventure is probably not the same as yours.

Neither are my victories.

Life has taught me to celebrate the little things;

To see, and to seek, the beauty in each day.

And as I learn to love myself and others where we are at-

To extend grace to each moment.

I am grasping just how

To eat an elephant,

One small bite at a time.


Now, your turn…
