Breathe in your normal days..

"Normal day, let me be aware of the treasure you are. Let me learn from you, love you, bless you before you depart. Let me not pass you by in quest of some rare and perfect tomorrow. Let me hold you while I may, for it may not always be so. One day, I shall dig my nails into the earth, or bury my face in the pillow, or stretch myself taut, or raise my hands to the sky and want, more than all the world, your return."
reader of Kelly Hampton

Love normal days.

Breathe in normal days.

Be thankful for normal days.

For there will be a time when normal

days seem just out of your reach.

The normal days a gift the Lord

allows us to open time

and time again.

Taken for granted.

The morning breakfast,

the lunch table,

the candle-lit supper with the feet

dangling underneath,

The laughs,

The boo-boos,

The naps,

The books,

The worship together

Oh Lord, Thank you

for my normal days.

The days when nothing
is happening
but the normal stuff..

Help me to breathe them

in and enjoy...
