There really isn’t much to say.
I’m dulled. Lacking in anything clever or inspirational for the moment.
Instead you now will be filled with stutterings of my normalcy.
School is getting done.
Bodies are being fed and watered.
Toilets are scrubbed weekly.
Laundry’s done daily.
Growing and changing done each second.
Life lived in our home, church, community.
While there isn’t much to write about here in the country, (unless you want to read about how the washing machine backed up last week all over the laundry floor, which resulted in my husband going on a major drain investigation) at least not anything gripping, I’m okay with it. Most often in my mind normal every day is good, real good!
Life is being lived here and we are aiming toward living to the fullest in Christ.
I just recently finished reading “Beautiful Outlaw” by John Eldridge. WOW! What a book! While I don’t agree with everything he says, I have appreciated getting to know Jesus and who He was and is better. So much so, that I am now reading it to my children. I want them to truly know Jesus in a deep and meaningful way. I know this book will open their eyes and heart like it did mine. To search Jesus out. To see Him with all his personality traits, His humanness and His Godliness. Not the limited Jesus that is often presented in churches.
Although I don’t feel I’m being called to anything amazing right now, just the every day, I know that in all reality this in itself is an amazing thing.
How easily I forget that.
Writing it brings it to remembrance.
And you also are among those who are called to belong to Jesus Christ. Romans 1:6
I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus. Philippians 3:14
So no matter how normal my days are and how little I feel there is to share with others, God always can bring something to mind that glows with a hint (or an abundance) of the amazing.
Today it saw it in pears!
Sounds funny, but looky see…
Our God, the Creator of pears, is amazing!
