“It’s not that unusual, when everything is beautiful”…
And Ms. Sarah sings it so lovely too. It makes me want to prepare it for a special for my church family, and turn it up loudly for the children here who follow me. I have the sudden urge to raise my hands as high as they can and smile, and I think I will. Maybe I’ll touch more of Him if I try to? Won’t you join me friends, in an ordinary day filled with gratitude…
The sky, the stars, sunshine and sunsets, birds, trees, flowers, mountains, lakes, the changing of seasons, and the uniqueness of humans… It’s hard to call these gifts “ordinary”. They’re nothing less than extraordinary, once we start noticing.
It’s just another ordinary miraculous kind of day. Everything is new in some kind of way. If we want to see a miracle… then maybe, all we have to do is look around us now.
It’s about not waiting around any longer for more life to come by but adding the living to life right now. Living today to the full. What if we’re barely scratching the surface? It makes me wonder if God can’t reveal too much at once because we wouldn’t know what to do with ourselves…
I think God has more for us, friends… To embrace ordinary things that happen every day like, a refreshing walk, a good book, your favorite meal, my baby boy’s smile. The list is endless once we start it… So make the decision to never stop. What a beautiful way to live.
Feel free to stay and press “play” to hear Sarah Mclachlan & see a few of my pictures!
“You will show me the way of life, granting me the joy of your presence
and the pleasures of living with you forever”.
