Holy in the Ordinary How often do we relegate to God only those things in which we feel he should have a say, yet exclude him from the ordinary things in life? — fromThe Bible's Best Love Stories
***** I am just so blah today. I am in a wednesday funk. I had a pretty good morning, I went for a walk at the park with my new friend Katie and our babies. The weather is just so icky out and I can't seem to open my eyes all the way today. It's days like today where I wish I were more devout. I need to start making these days about being thankful and happy about what I a blessed with. It's so hard not to just wallow in myself. I have no reason to feel this way and I feel like I also have no reason to not feel this way. It's really very selfish. Serena is down for a nap now and I can't bring myself to do anything productive. Should we allow ourselves these days? Do I need to power through this and get up and do something productive? Like the minute meditation quote above, I too often exclude god from ordinary life. Today doesn't get more ordinary. I need to figure out how to relegate God to today, to make today special and meaningful. It seems these daily emails I get are really on spot lately. A little nudge in the right direction.
