Not Ordinary

"Take a good look, friends, at who you were when you got called into this life. I don't see many of 'the brightest and the best' among you, not many influential, not many from high-society families. Isn't it obvious that God deliberately chose men and women that the culture overlooks and exploits and abuses, chose these 'nobodies' to expose the hollow pretensions of the 'somebodies'? --1 Corinthians 1:26-27

"Loving Father, you made me, so you know very well that I am but dust.  Yet you have called me into your kingdom to serve you at this specific place, at this specific time, for a very specific purpose.  Despite my ordinariness, I belong to you - and you are anything but ordinary!  Help me pour out your grace and compassion upon others that they, too, may experience the richness of your love.  Through me, my Father, show others how you can use an ordinary life to being extraordinary blessing into the world.  In Jesus' name I pray, amen."
--Max Lucado, "Out Live Your Life"

Things I am thankful for today:

2.  Quiet days.
3.  Venting frustrations.
4.  Bananas.
5.  Glittens.
6.  No TV in the morning.
7.  Getting through another workout.
8.  The movie, "Inception" - very good!
9.  Grocery shopping - Finally!
10.  A lovely night at home with the hubby and the dog.
