Sharing The Light
No Such Thing As Ordinary
Ordinary. Plain. Routine. Usual. Regular. Average. Run-of-the-mill. Typical. Unremarkable.
Hmm. Are these some of the words we use to describe our days? Maybe EVERY day?
I mean, really, think about it. Going to and from work – the same job - the same way, every day. Or, maybe taking the kids to and from school – the same school – the same way, every day. Then, taking them to the same after-school activities every day. How about doing the same household work, the same way, at the same time, every day? Or maybe going to the same classes, at the same times, the same way, every day?
But wait…there has to be more…
There is more…right…?
YES!! There IS more!! SO. MUCH. MORE! We just have to look for it – and SEE it! Listen for it – and HEAR IT! Reach for it – and TOUCH it! Long for it – and FEEL it!
No thing and no person around us is ordinary or unremarkable. We are surrounded by beautiful, extraordinary, and truly remarkable people, art, music, nature, and the list is endless! But in order to recognize it and make it part of our day – each and every day – we have to LOOK, LISTEN, REACH, and LONG for it so we can SEE, HEAR, TOUCH, and FEEL it!
Take time to see, hear, touch, and feel the beauty, love, joy, and eternal nature of everyone and everything around you. As you do, you will see all that God has done for you, and you will feel peace.
