Ordinary~~Five Minute Friday03/01/2013 - Author: Jennifer - 6 Comments
Every Friday, Lisa-Jo Baker over at Tales from a Gypsy Mama gives us a word and a challenge. To write for 5 minutes without abandon. It is fun and I encourage you to try it. Here we go! The word is…
I struggle with being ordinary. I struggle with it because it seems boring. It seems like I am not making a difference. Staying at home with my son has made me re-evaluate my ministry. Yes, I want to do more. I have always believed moms do awesome things in the ordinary, but when it was my turn, I didn’t believe it for myself. I have to WORK at finding the amazing in the ordinary. I wish I didn’t, but I guess I am still adjusting to not working full-time outside of the home.
I believe without a doubt that God has made everyone of us for a purpose, but I struggle to see what He wants me to do with my ordinary life. The chores and the time with my son, I hope, help make an ordinary life more of a home that my husband and son want to come home to because there is no other place they want to be.
I write from an ordinary life hoping it will help others, bless others, and that people will see my amazing Savior.
