When I Fall

I’m not graceful when I stumble

And that’s okay.

It’s the recovery where you find grace.

And often,

Your strength and dignity.

  2. It’s not our failures that define us; it is how we come back from adversity that does.
    Happy Monday.

    That grace and strength comes from the outstretched hand of Jesus as He picks up, heals our wounds and continues on with us. I have stumbled often and sometimes not so gracefully only to find the hand of Jesus in the form of my husband, children, dear friends, sometimes even a stranger or two.

  12. I fell off a small step yesterday and while I would have liked to lay around and collect myself I felt compelled to spring up and say “I’m okay!” I felt like I was part of a Monty Python skit. Ego a bit bruised but otherwise intact. A fall from grace or a fall off the step, no permanent damage Touch wood.

  13. This is very true. I have a few memories of loved ones falling and then getting up. You’re right, the getting up is where the dignity is. And it’s a metaphor too!

    This is true on So many levels! LOL! I’ve experienced this both literally and figuratively and both require resilience in the recovery. 🙂
