God In the Mundane?
2/3/2010 7:58 AM
Today has been a mundane day: laundry, lunches to be made, piles of forms to fill out, bills to pay and bathrooms to clean. In the midst of it all my 5 year old son bops around happily with his toys, plays in the bathtub and giggles in front of his favorite TV show. I put aside all my mundane stuff to help my little guy make his valentines. We add two pieces of candy to each bag and add it to the growing pile of goodies inside his Valentine's Day Box. It was fun, peaceful and simple to spend some time with my youngest one. I suppose it was mundane too, but I guess everything we do becomes what we make of it. I'm blessed to have a washer and dryer that work, I have a fridge full of good food for my family, forms are filled out to provide wonderful things for us, bills can actually be paid and I have a toilet that flushes. Really, my day has been a gift so far. My family is safe and warm and there's no category 7 earthquake here today. Something about the "mundane" can be so incredibly peaceful. Everything is as it should be and I'm just doing the stuff that usually needs to get done. Today God is in the mundane: keeping us safe, blessing us and watching over us as we go about our day. Today is a really good day.
