Today I’m knee-deep in the ordinary…in the mundane. Maybe you are like me, changing diapers, making macaroni and cheese, cleaning up toys all the day long. Or maybe you are sitting at a desk working 8-5 watching the time pass oh so slowly (I’ve been there!) Maybe you are like me and keep seeing things over social media about “making goals for 2014” and the only goal you have in mind is to make dinner tonight. Maybe you aren’t any of these things, but I sure am. Lately I’ve been in some sort of slump about how small my day-to-day life seems. But on the other hand, how wonderful and blessed I am to be able to do the “little” and “small” things. My mom sent me a quote this morning and couldn’t have been more perfect.
“The discovery of God lies in the daily and the ordinary, not in the spectacular and he heroic. If we cannot find God in the routines of home and shop, then we will not find Him at all.” ~Richard Foster.
Yikes. I guess it’s time for me to start looking for Him in my usual and not always exiting routine. That’s my prayer today. My prayer is an attitude change, and to find contentment and beauty in the ordinary of today.
