ORDINARY DAYS

“He is not God of the dead, but of the living...” – Luke 20:38

Yesterday I was struck by an article on the Sunday Missalette entitled “Finding Grace in Ordinary Days.”
After Pentecost and before Advent are ordinary days in the Catholic liturgical calendar.
We always aim for and reward the extraordinary. We pray for miracles, expect great things to happen and rejoice in the overwhelming grace or blessings we receive. But yes, there is grace and blessing in the ordinary.
When we overlook the ordinary — and we often do — we miss the grace and blessing that the everyday “normal” brings. But if you think about it, that’s where most of our blessings abound. That every ordinary breath of ours brings life. That we can do the things normal people do. That the sun rises every morning. That the daily tasks and routines get done.
After all, ordinary isn’t so commonplace when a disruption happens. Like when you lose a yaya. Or you get sick. Or you lose your job.
No, nothing is ordinary or normal in a Christian’s life. Everything is a miracle and a grace. Rissa Singson-Kawpeng (justbreatherissa@gmail.com)

REFLECTION:
It takes an exceptional soul in an ordinary Christian to see God’s blessings in the daily grind.

Lord, thank You for everything that is “ordinary” and “normal” in my life.
