Saturday Scriptures: Praising God for Normal Days
Today is what I would call a "normal" day.  Nothing big is happening, I'm not particularly worried about anything and it is a normal Saturday for us. We slept a little later, went out shopping and bought Cassie a cat tower, ate lunch out and came home. I dusted a little on furniture when we got home. All normal Saturday activities. The thought occurs to me that these normal days sometimes feel so usual, that it is easy to forget to praise God for the "normal." What a wonderful gift normal days are!! At this moment, no one we love is sick, there are no disasters happening in our home or family and we are just doing the routine. Routine is a good thing and I praise God for the routineness of today! I pray, that your day is equally "normal" for you, as well. 

From Psalm 18: (The Message)
Now I'm alert to God's ways;
I don't take God for granted.
Every day I review the ways He works....

Amen!! Thank the Lord for normal days. This made me think (as these posts always do). Do I remember to thank God when the shoe isn't dropping? Do I just pause throughout the day to be grateful for the absence of a crisis? I do need to do better at this. Normal days are a balm for our spirits!

Thanks for your insightful post, Debbie! I'm often relieved to have those routine days, but I often forget to be grateful for them. Your words will be a nice reminder.
