To anyone looking in on our lives they might think that there was nothing special going on. That all of this is rather ordinary. But I beg to differ. Our life is anything but ordinary. Just look at the baby sleeping in the crib and you’ll see the extraordinary miracle of life and trust. If you could see my daughter from my viewpoint, you wouldn’t see an ordinary little girl, you’d see the amazement and wonder on a child’s face as she catches a ladybug. Just talk to my 6 year old son. He looks ordinary, but when he is praying for his baby sister to walk ‘like a normal person’, I see and hear extraordinary faith. And then there is my 3 year old. He’s just another child in some people’s book, but when his face breaks out into a smile, it’s rather unordinary, if you ask this mama.
And the love that my husband gives me, the way he puts my phone on the charger before he leaves in the morning or scribbles the word ‘beautiful’ on one of my newly printed business cards – those are extraordinary moments.
Lastly, there is nothing ordinary about the love that weaves itself through our lives, the love that is poured out on us by our extraordinary Savioir.
So, if you see us, and think about how ordinary we are, take a second look.
