Five Minute Friday: Ordinary

It's Friday. That day where we write for the pure joy of writing.
Then we link up here http://lisajobaker.com/category/five-minute-friday/
Why not join in?
Today's prompt is ORDINARY

I love ordinary.
The everyday.
The normal.
A bit of routine.

Hanging out the washing.
Reading a book.
A cuddle with my boys
Working at the computer.

I once heard someone say
"Do the ordinary well. And be ready for the critical moment"

It was a long time ago.
But I remember.
It resonated.
And now
All these years later
I know the truth.

That with God nothing is ordinary
He transforms everything

As I watch
And wait
And look above
He changes the ordinary moments into God moments.

This is my first venture with Five Minute Fridays. I enjoyed your post. I especially like the reminder that God transforms everything (even those moments we think are so very ordinary). Praying we both accept the invitation to receive the miraculous wrapped in the guise of the everyday. Blessings!

I love this!! "With God nothing is ordinary. He transforms everything." So true!! So beautiful!! Let us praise Him for all of it: the ordinary, the extraordinary... even the critical moments.
Thanks for sharing!!
