Is anything ever ordinary? Doesn’t it depend on how you look at it?
We take so many things for granted, which for others are something extraordinary.
Take drinking water. Or education. A roof over your head. Food on the table.
In our part of the world, these are ordinary things. And we forget that for millions of others it is not.
Many girls, boys, men and women are caught in the webs of traffickers. They are being enslaved. No day is ordinary for them. They have no freedom to decide when they are going to sleep, when and what they will eat, where they will live. Everything is decioded for them, and no cooperation means being hurt in many ways.
The present generation thinks that computers and the internet has lways been here. Being available and accesible 24/7 is ordinary. But for those of us who still remember the phone hooked on the wall, we know that life used to be quite different.
What is ordinary?
Certainly people aren’t. We are each made intrinsically different. Our Creator has an imagination beyond our wildest dreams. He created each person that walked the face of the earth – how awesome is that when you think about it for even a fleeting moment!
I don’t know what is.
