I have given myself a
goal of writing and publishing every Monday through the end of
September. Since I’ve been out of the habit – and that is what it is you
know, a habit – of posting on a regular basis that is quite a
challenge. But I have given this a lot of thought and prayer. I know I
am supposed to stay on in this space. At least for a while longer. Setting a goal like this forces me to publish and then see where that leads.
I struggled getting something ready for today.
Then, yesterday (Sunday) I saw this on my in(Courage) calendar.
Sometimes I think I am looking for some big. Something different. Something that will WOW me.
The fact of the matter is that the ordinary should WOW me. I spent some time with some of John’s family this weekend. I took my niece shopping and she was talking about how there are “special” things that are for special occasions. I thought for a moment, then I told her I no longer save things for “special occasions.”
Crystal wine glasses…every time I need a glass.
My favorite dishes…whenever I want.
So, find your ordinary today and remember it is extraordinary. It is a gift from God.

I love your perspective, Mary: "Special occasions happen every day.
I believe LIFE is a special occasion." Amen!
Thanks, Lisa! I think you and I have a common perspective on that! 🙂
Great prespective! YES!! Every morning is amazing when you have a close and personal relationship with Jesus!
Yes, Kathy, that personal relationship makes all the difference! So happy to see you here.
