Ordinary day

Sometimes some ordinary day will come, 
A busy day like this - fill to the brim
With ordinary tasks - perhaps so full
That we have little thought or care for Him.

And there will be no hint from silent  skies, 
No sign, no clash of cymbals, roll of drums;
And yet that ordinary day will be
The very day in which our Lord will come.

My mum gave this to me ages ago
and I stumble across it on the weekend.
A very timely reminder in our very hectic world.



  1. Beautiful reminder, Jo. Beautiful picture. I love how you've re-decorated.

    God bless!

  2. That is great and seems to be the theme I am reading through my blog friends...and so many of the post have to do with things their mothers taught them and their busy days.

  3. Jo,

    It's "funny" how the we often do find the Lord on "ordinary days." It's just something that I had not thought about until I read this wonderful little quote.


  4. It's a sobering thought isn't it!
    A great quote, Jo.
    bless you..Trish

  5. Sobering indeed! I love reading little poems like this. (o:

  6. Jo - a lovely verse - even more special because it was a gift from you Mom. Certainly it has such grate meaning for us all. The photo is so tranquil - I would love to be sitting on the edge of that dock with my feet in the water~~


  7. That is a lovely photo and I really like the poem from your Mum.
