Day 11 of Wild and Precious Life/ Ordinary!!!

So I missed a week of the 31 days, and yet I am summoning the courage to appear again, despite my forgetfulness/not fulfilling the goal, etc... Why?  Because despite falling down in the race, I want to finish.  I think this is our ordinary human life.  We fall down on our goals.  And then this prompt came from 5 Minute Friday, and it was perfect for today.  ORDINARY
And the first thing that comes to my mind is Romans 12:1 in the Message Bible:
 "So here's what I want you to do, God helping you:  Take you everyday, ordinary life---your sleeping, eating going-to-work, and walking-around life---and place it before God as an offering"

How do "ordinary" and  "wild and precious" come together?  And I think that that is the whole point!  When I see that the eggs I fried for breakfast are God providing for this precious child,  the figs I picked off the tree are God's beautiful art in my back yard, the cutting and sewing and emails I do today as God's grace to help us through my husband's unemployment, not JUST a mundane list of tasks to be accomplished....Then I know how precious I am.  And as I sew Little Red Riding Hood outfits today, I will think on that and on the precious little girls who will wear them and pretend and be delighted. 
5 minutes is up!!!

Have a day of beauty and knowing you are precious, always!!

  1. It's been the greatest gift to me to realize that my mundane tasks are more than ordinary, they are the extraordinary parts of life my children will remember. I far more fondly remember my mom in the kitchen every night preparing dinner above anything else. And get back on the 31 Days wagon, no one will tell that you hopped off for a bit :) Last year I posted only 17 of 31 posts.
