Sacred in the Ordinary

Sometimes life moves so fast that when we look back on just yesterday we recall but an ordinary day. I don't think that God wants us to have just ordinary days. I think He wants us to have extraordinary days. To find His that is sacred in the ordinary.

I exclaimed in awe. "Wow!" they responded.   "Isn't God awesome; to give us such a beautiful sky?" and that is the extraordinary in an otherwise ordinary day. Not to be overlooked. But to exclaim,"God, you're cool!"
