living in the ordinary

I've felt quiet on the inside lately.  There hasn't been any urgency to write or record my thoughts.  That's rare for me.  I've just been busy with life...painting sets for big chick's play, running errands...the daily living stuff. 

When you think about it most of our time is spent living in the ordinary. There usually isn't earth shattering excitement on a regular basis. We have our routine. We hit that alarm clock, stumble to the bathroom, make coffee or breakfast, get on with the to-do lists of today. If you are anything at all like me the first hour or so of the day is a sleepy eyed blur. It's usually my least favorite hour of the day. 

I'd like to change that if I could.  What I would really like is to hear the alarm clock go off and instead of groaning inwardly to myself, I would like peace to cover me.  I want a renewed excitement for the day to come.  I want to see it as a blank canvas ready to be decorated with splashes of joy, splashes of passion, splashes of purpose.   We are all artists.  Life just happens to be the canvas we get to decorate.  Even in the ordinary I want to create a masterpiece. 

Have a blessed day.
