I think sometimes I feel like I don't have anything big or deep to blog about-- to share with you.
My days are strikingly ordinary and most of the time I'm in the same pattern, doing the same things each day.
But what I've realized is that the beauty is in the mundane-- these ordinary moments of every day life. Few of us are rockstars, secret agents or Presidents-- we may not save lives or sign autographs.
Most of the time, our days are routine-- we rise and stumble to the bathroom, we greet our family or coworkers, we stop for a red light, we wait for a microwave to finish reheating our coffee, we meet the eyes of someone passing us on a sidewalk.
Yet it's in these tiny moments that real life happens-- where we make big decisions and small ones, where we interact with those we love and those that drive us crazy. And it is these seconds and easy-to-forget times that are the stuff of real life-- and yes, it's all worth sharing-- on a blog or off.
I am trying to enjoy the ordinary moments of real life. I want to see God in these small seconds, in tiny interactions and decisions, not taking even the smallest act-- like me, reheating a cup of coffee for the third time, for granted.
