Normal and extraordinary

Every morning the sun rises, normal and extraordinary
Every night the stars shine, normal and extraordinary.
Every day the waves of the ocean rise and fall, normal and extraordinary.
Every day a hawk soars, normal and extraordinary.

Every snowflake one of a kind, normal and extraordinary.
Every day plants grow, flowers bloom, normal and extraordinary.

Every day a baby learns to walk, normal and extraordinary.
Every moment another breath, normal and extraordinary.
Every moment our heart beats, then rests,
then beats again, normal and extraordinary.

We see, we hear, we taste, we feel, all normal and extraordinary.
We walk, we run, we jump, all normal and extraordinary.
We sing, we play an instrument, we dance, we draw, again normal and extraordinary.

We speak, we write, we pray, normal and extraordinary.

Romans 1:20
20 For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities–his eternal power and divine nature–have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse.

Normal and extraordinary.

2 Corinthians 5:17
17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!

The normal Christian life, extraordinary!


Feeling just normal,

Joe
