A Commonplace Life

A commonplace life, we say and we sigh,
But why do we sigh as we say?
The commonplace sun in the commonplace sky
Makes up the commonplace day

The moon and the stars are commonplace things
And the flower that blooms and the bird that sings;
But dark were the world and sad our lot,
If the flowers failed and the sun shone not.

And God who studies each separate soul
Out of commonplace lives makes His beautiful whole.

- F.W. Boreham

Beautiful! Although, I had to read it several times to "get it"! LOL - must be the little ones in the background and the fried brain at 5:30pm.

Stop by when you get a chance - I tagged you!
