Sacred in the Ordinary:

I am tempted to search for the extraordinary. I catch myself longing for the incredible. I fight the urge to notice the spectacular. In doing so, I risk missing the most extraordinary, incredible and spectacular of all... the sacred in the ordinary.

My Moment...

Normal bedtime routine with our little guy is to feed him a bottle with cereal while rocking him. We then put him in bed and he puts himself to sleep.

This last week, he was so calmed after having his bottle that I just kept rocking him. The house was quiet. I found myself quoting Scripture to him.

I rocked my little guy to sleep, quoting nothing but scriptures the entire time. He fell asleep with God's Word fresh in his mind.

I was so captivated by the experience that even after he was asleep in my arms, I found God's Word continue to pour from my lips audibly over him.

This ordinary moment truly became such a very sacred one for me that night.

What moment did you notice this week?

  1. Precious, precious moments. We know how quickly the days slip into years, and it is so wise to savor this special times. You are making eternal deposits into that dear little heart.

  2. I had a moment in the time when you are just starting to wake up but not quite awake. . . that is a moment when God often speaks to me as I look to starting my day.

  3. That is really powerful. Such a precious moment for you.

    My sacred in the ordinary was driving home from visiting my girl in another province. Just looking at the landscape, noticing how different it was from the landscape in my own province but realizing that God created it all. How "artistic" He is, how imaginative, how He gives us so many gifts in nature to show us Himself.

  4. I apologize I am just now catching up. Don't you find this time around everything is a "big deal." You KNOW now how fast it goes, so each phase is that much sweeter. Not to say that you don't value each little milestone with your older kids, it is just a different kind of sweet.



Thank you for taking a moment to stop and chat. I enjoy the presence of you!
