The Mundane

I started off the day today early, with a little boy who thought it was time to wake up first at 4:30 am, and finally at 5:30 am. So I made the most of it and got into the Word. And now I'm chuckling over how the spiritual meets the mundane--how my heart and mind can be wrapped up in God's word, and in the next moment I'm knee deep in life. For me the mundane today is potty training. Yep, I'm attempting it. I have no idea how this will go, but as we speak Landis is wearing his cute Thomas the Train undies. And I have to keep insisting he call them "undies," since his sisters wear "panties" so that's what he keeps saying.

So in this earthly day, I leave you with a verse the girls and I have been discussing, and one I've been praying for Naomi, and for myself...

Psalm 119: 57, "You are my portion, O LORD."

I laughed out loud when I got to the undies/panties part. I remember making that transition when potty training Noah, I couldn't believe how hard it was to not call them panties!

And that is a beautiful scripture to meditate on! Thank you for sharing it!
