My Ordinary Became Extraordinary


Today I am joining Lisa-Jo and friends for Five Minute Friday.
This is where we come together writing for 5 minutes without editing or overthinking.
I love this community.

Check out what everyone's is sharing on the word ORDINARY here.

Five Minute Friday


It's in the midst of the ordinary, every day moments that I live a really big life. 
You see I am a wife and mother. 
There isn't a paycheck or a plaque on a wall that could give that justice. 

I serve my family out of a love so big. I make beds, clean house, do laundry, cook meals, and various other household duties. But that isn't what I will be remembered for by these men both big and little. It will be the moments when I listened to their dreams and said that they can do anything. It will be the moments when I wiped their tears and told them everything would be ok. It will be the moments when I hugged them and told them how much they are loved.

They will know that I have a relationship with God that made all of it possible. They will know that the love I have for them was an overflow of His love for me. That I am able to serve them with a big love because He showed me what love like that means.
They will know that my ordinary became extraordinary because of Him.

 We love because he first loved us.
1 John 4:19

Blessings,

  2. Dear Wendy
    When I see your smile I think of your extra-ordinary love for your family and others and that makes all suffering worth-while, don't you think! Yes, Wendy, when we allow our Pappa to love others through our suffering He has healed, then we know what true happiness is!
    Much love
    Mia

  6. Oh yes, dear friend. They'll know...in fact, they already do.
    What a perfect verse to reflect on while I'm doing all those kinds of cleaning duties I'd rather procrastinate on!;) Thank you...
