I'm just an ordinary girl from an ordinary family. I married an ordinary man, we bought an ordinary house, we both have ordinary jobs, we have an ordinary son, and we live an ordinary life.

You get the picture.

However ordinary my life may be, God wants my life to be extraordinary, and if I lean on Him, there is no reason that it can't be.

You see, He has given me gifts and talents, and He expects me to use them for His glory. Do I always do this? The simple answer is no, and when I stop and think about it, I am ashamed. Sometimes I have a bad attitude and I complain about things rather than soaking in all the blessings that He has bestowed upon me.

I really need to just stop and reflect more on the wonderful things in my life, and I know if I do this, that I will realized all those ordinary things, they won't seem so ordinary anymore.

  1. Hi Salena!

    Great post--full of "ordinary" truth. :)

    I love your "Married to my bff!" button! So cute!

    Visiting via FMF. (My name gets misspelled like yours all the time...and I'm called Sabrina, or Serena. How about you?)


    1. Thanks! I love "meeting" other people with my name. I've only met a few ever, and I've always liked that about my name.

      I have been called Serena on occasion, and my name gets spelled incorrectly all the time. I teach first grade, and since Selena Gomez became popular, they all think I have the coolest name.
