Stutterings of Normalcy

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.

Housecleaning accomplished.

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…

Pears, anyone?




Our God, the Creator of pears, is amazing!

  1. What a beautiful post today - and these pears are quite lovely!

  2. This post wasn't boring, mere rambling or "abnormal" about your normal life.

    It was real. True. You! Loved it.

    Love those pears and the Maker of those pairs. Thanks for sharing.

  3. I like the times where everything is "normal". It allows my mind time to rest! Normally it's all over the place just trying to keep up with my body! :o)

    Those pears are so perfect they look unreal!

  4. A very relatable post if I do say so and I love how vibrant those pears are. Beautiful indeed and amazing God for sure!

  5. Sometimes bein' a wife and mother is amazin' enough.

    Life is beautiful and so are your pics!

    God bless and have a fabulous day sweetie...just bein'..........


  6. I thought this was a great post! :)
    I'm going to check out the book you mentioned. I'm always looking for a new one.
    And my grandmother used to cut pears and make pear honey. It was SOOO good on warm toast or bisquits!
    It was her every day living on the farm that I have so many wonderful memories of. Don't knock the day to day stuff:) (not that you were;)

  7. Yes, my friend...the blessings of routine are just that...BLESSINGS!!! Enjoy! (Except for the backed up washing machine...that is NOT *routine*!)


    P.S. And get well soon!

  8. Love that picture. It's lovely!
