Unassuming and bland….
There are so many of these adjectives in my life. Nothing spectacular or exciting. Just the same things every day.
Get up, shower, dressed, kids up, fed, dressed, to school, to work, nap-time, lunch time, pick up kids, homework, dinner, baths, prayers, bed…. everyday.
I need to find contentment in the ordinary.
There are so many who long for the ordinary I take for granted….
Mama’s who work 3-jobs to feed their kids….
Daddy’s who watch their children fight for life in a cancer center…
A homeless man sitting in a restaurant hoping someone will buy him a meal…
Children who move from foster home to foster home….
Lord please help me find contentment in the ordinary. To cherish the routine and the habitual and the bland. Please Lord, take my ordinary life, and use it to make someone’s life extraordinary! Use me Lord to do extraordinary with my ordinary life.
