My Thoughts Exactly

“G. K. Chesterton reminds us in Orthodoxy, God may indeed be “strong enough to exult in monotony. It is possible that God says every morning, ‘Do it again’ to the sun; and every evening, ‘Do it again’ to the moon. This may be our most holy calling: to persist with our daily obligations and routines, and even to enjoy the ordinariness of life. As an Episcopal bishop, Frank Wade, has said: “I am certain that God must love the ordinary, because he made so much of it.”          -Kathleen Norris

  1. Many people are uncomfortable if they do not have a routine to guide them. Maybe this is one reason why our God provided us with the sunrise, sunsets , and the beauty in the world we see around us. A simple routine of walking up in the morning each day, still breathing is a miraculous thing. People live, people die… yet it is what a person accomplishes in their lifetime that leaves a mark in this world. While we experience the ordinary routines we have around us, let us make it be our goal to show appreciation for the gift of life by embracing these things……. and truly develop a bond with our neighbors and our loving Creator.
