We write for five minutes flat. All on the same prompt that I post here at 1 minute past midnight EST ever Friday. And we connect on Twitter with the hashtag #FiveMinuteFriday

Today the word is GRACE.
Can a non-Christian apply the concept of Grace to her life? I suppose yes. Grace is just the way to go about life in a way – peaceful, thoughtful, generous. Always living by the morals that were instilled by parents, by life, by belief.
So in that way, I think I do live by the concept of Grace.
But sometimes I feel it is a word used exclusively for those who follow a Biblical path.
What difference is there between Biblical and secular grace? Is there any? Am I just having a bit of a knee-jerk reaction to the word, fearing a religious meaning to it?
Or perhaps I misconstrue the concept of grace entirely.
I’m definitely not grace-ful. I am a klutz, after all. I take clumsiness to new heights.
So does a Pagan have grace? It’s not particularly emphasized in the circles I’ve meandered through.
I suppose ultimately being the best person I can be, and trying to express that through kindness and generosity is the way to find grace.
