It is all around us, like weeds in a field.
The daily, the rote, the oh yes this again.
Life lived through the motions... the ordinary.
I need to slow down... for that is when I realize that the ordinary is what makes us, and without it we'd be nothing. Some days I forget that this life I'm living is not a string of days blocking my way to the weekend, but a string of days He has fashioned just for me. Mostly, those days are messy... shoes piled by the couch, dishes in the sink, a heart that beats both elated and aching for the very same girl. But the messy doesn't end at the weekend... and I shouldn't begin there. He made seven days... and if He made them, I should dance through them.
Oh God, help me see... that the ordinary should be celebrated. I want to look beyond the piles and see adventure and time spent laughing over dinner... that a basket of laundry could be more than just dirt from a week of living, and a field of weeds just might be a field of fairy flowers instead...
