Gratitude Day 133 – Ordinary Day

Thurs., Oct. 11, 2018

1 Thessalonians 2:6 – We didn’t ask for special treatment from people—not from you or from others


It was an ordinary day. A little rain. A lot of mud. Time with some of our favorite people: our grandchildren.


Hubby Rick and Dylan played ball. Ellie and I went for a walk.


We took in some fall sights and had lunch together.


We went to the river, skipped rocks and watched the water.


We rode the train together and visited the pet cemetery.


It was an ordinary day. Nothing special. Nothing out of the ordinary. Yet, memories were created. Hugs given and received. No special treatment. Just an ordinary day.


For God ordinary days with special people, I am thankful.


Lord God – I pray we find you in the ordinary today. Too often, we expect you only in the extraordinary. But you are in the regular, every day just as much. May we find you in our ordinary day today. Amen.

Blessings –

  1. No, it was Sat. I’m just late! For the last several years, I wished for a “boring” day. I would say I still haven’t had that boring day. But I’m happy to say that life is not quite as full as it was for so many years. I pray you can find some “Doris” time. YOU DESERVE IT!!


  2. Diane and Rick We are having a surprise Birthday Party for Arden’s 90th at the North Freedom Village Hall today from 1 PM to 3:30 PM. No gifts just come and wish him a Happy Birthday.


    1. Judy – Unfortunately, we had other things going on Saturday and were not able to attend Arden’s party. We’ll be in touch with them soon and plan to have lunch with them. Thanks for letting us know. Blessings – Dianne
