It’s a normal, every day kind of day.
At least it is in our corner of the world. At this moment anyway.
There’s nothing exciting going on. Nothing new. Nothing out of the ordinary. There’s nothing happening that’s “worth writing home about.”
In fact, some might be bored with life around here today.
But, you know? I’m quite okay with an every day kind of day.
It’s in days like today I get to embrace the little, the insignificant, the mundane. At least it may appear as such. What I’ve found, however, these “little” things are really the big things.
The “little” in life is what ends up being big.
Normal, every day kind of day moments like making breakfast and going to work. Simple daily tasks such as folding laundry and mopping the floor. Routine times of doing the same thing you did yesterday. Sure, they may seem like nothing special, but friend, nothing could be further from the truth.
These are the special occasions real life is made of. These are the blessings that fill ordinary days. And, these are the times God’s whispers are present.
Truth be told, there’s nothing mundane about living life. There’s nothing monotonous, or boring, or “un-special” about your life or mine. Even on the “nothing to write home about” days. Each and every single day is a gift. Each minute we’re given is something precious. Every single breath we take is nothing short of a miracle.
Yet, all too often we are looking for the larger-than-life moments.
This is the day the Lord has made. We will rejoice and be glad in it. Psalm 118:24 NLT
So, what’s so special about an every day kind of day?
Because the Lord designed it, and what He makes is extraordinary and excellent and beautiful.
I pray we choose to embrace the every day kind of day, and may we live each moment in thankfulness, appreciation, and wonder!
God bless you, friend!
