Finding joy in the ordinary. We are blessed to have ordinary available to us. When we have a long, stressing day- there is an ordinary we can retreat to. And when we are just tired of the hustle, the ordinary has routine to comfort us.

Why do people hate the ordinary, and then hurt themselves because their life is not extraordinary? They say it's because they can't stand the monotony of it all. If this is you, know that you do not want an extraordinary life. You want a fulfilling life.

Thank God for his sacrifice of Jesus. Thank Him for his gift of ordinary, and for the blessings he provides in routine.

This post was brought to you by the A-Z Challenge, and the letter:


  1. I think I need to learn a lessor or two from you. :)

  2. I need to learn more than a lesson or two myself, I'm always telling myself to relax. Constantly battling with ourselves makes us human :)
