Story {Five Minute Friday}


We are all living in a story- our story.  Do we recognize how important this story is?  Do we enter each day wondering how the story will play out in our life?  Or, do we simply trudge along.  Making it day by painstaking day.

How much more of life could be savored if we embraced the amazing gift of this story.

every. single. day.

We are living in the greatest love story of all.  We have a hero and we know the enemy.  We know that good, and justice, and love wins in the end.  We know the end to this love story.  We forget though.  We forget our part in it.  We let the mundane and the ordinary weigh us down.

What would happen if we instead embrace the ordinary for the beauty of routine?  Or find the sacred in the mundane?  How about we take all the seemingly insignificant parts of our days and live them with intention.  Live them knowing that everything is being woven together in the tapestry called our life.

Live because you are living in the greatest story ever told.

The point is the love story.  We live in a love story in the midst of war. ~John Eldredge

  1. Beautiful inspiration Cheri for starting my Saturday morning house cleaning 🙂 … stopping over from Five Minute Friday – hello! – I like your analogy … the ‘war’ is anything you let steal your beauty, God’s Glory, your ‘story’.

    Enjoy your weekend!

    1. Ah, Saturday morning house cleaning- I’m procrastinating as long as possible myself 🙂 Thanks for visiting!

  2. “What would happen if we instead embrace the ordinary for the beauty of routine?” – Yes! And living with intention – yes!
