The picture is of ordinary leaves in the fall. Strange how ordinary can be so beautiful. As I write today, I think about how ordinary is often unappreciated. This is my second time writing about ordinary. Check out my first post here.
The bed I sleep in.
The clothes I wear.
They are ordinary.
On a good day,
ordinary is what I need.
Ordinary means smooth,
like when we finish the school day without a hitch.
Sometimes it means the recipe turns out like I expected.
Or there are no new unpleasant surprises.
Good ordinary, I don't seem to value it.
But when the day is rough,
I long for ordinary.
A headache makes me
want no headache.
A fight-throughout-the-day school day makes me
long for an ordinary day.
The surprises that are unexpected flops or extra work make me
long for ordinary.

Odinary is that thing that yougrow accustomed to doing every day, and when you do something that messes that up,you feel unbalancced, like you're upsidedown. But did you know, our world is already upsidedown? When Jesus comes, everything will be set in place again. So, all you have to do to take care of your part is to be perpared for him to come.

Ordinary now days is getting up in the morning and getting on your iPad, nook, tablet and start playing that new game you just downloaded last night.
Note: I asked Bear if this was his ordinary day. He said that this was what was ordinary for kids now. I think he's right.
