Five Minute Friday — Ordinary

just writing and not worrying if it’s just right (or on time) or not?

Today’s prompt:


everyday,   common,   useful,   used

I like ordinary

I like normal,  (even if it is only a setting on the dryer)

even,  level,  dependable,  expected


I have seen the ordinary used in extra-ordinary ways

a small boy’s lunch

a touch of a hem

clay made of spittle

a grain of mustard seed

a word spoken     —————-peace, be still

fish and bread,   a robe,   clay,   seeds,   words

when blessed by the master ——miracles occur.


But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world
to confound the wise;
and God hath chosen the weak things of the world
to confound the things which are mighty;
1Corinthians 1:27

  1. I’m visiting from 5-minute Fridays. You have captured the beauty of the ordinary. God works through the ordinary.

    Have a blessed weekend!

  2. I love it. So, so true. I love how God used the ordinary nitty gritty things to convey some of who He is to us. I love how He still does that. And I LOVE this reminder to look for Him there.

  3. Beautiful…..absolutely beautiful. Such a precious reminder that anything, when placed in God’s hands, becomes extraordinary….even us! :o)

    Loved this-

  4. This is beautiful dear friend. As the world works so hard to find the super fantastic description of things…ordinary speaks volumes.

    Loved this and I love you,
