ordinary days

Just a few from this weekend. Most days are ordinary, aren't they? I'm often searching for something more exciting, more fun. But life is made up of ordinary days. Sometimes thats hard and today was one of those days that I longed for something more. The freedom to finally paint and shabby chic my side table, go shopping at Anthro. try out a new recipe.  But instead I stand and watch kids ride bikes on the street. and search for cars. I make a dinner I've had since I was a kid. I fold laundry. I rock sleeping babies. Now I'm tired. No time for shabby chic"ing" or making photo books.  I want to be a glad servant but today I'm not. 

God mercifully intercedes in those moments and shows me his ways are above my ways. By God’s grace I can resist the temptation to treat my children as interruptions to my will for my life. Instead, God enables me to treat them as precious gifts he is using to shape me into his image according to his will for my life.
-quoted from Gloria Furman


  1. so beautifully written and lived!
    love you my sweet!

  2. Ain't that the truth! Remember the movie "Groundhog's Day", where the main character lives the same day over and over? That is motherhood sometimes. :)

    At least when you come back for a visit here, you can go to Anthro in Oakville, yay!

    Love Ally xox
