Extraordinary Love

“We are not called by God to do extraordinary things, but to do ordinary things with extraordinary love.”     —Jean Vanier   (founder of L’Ache)

Hi friends– In these full days of Christmas there are so many ordinary ways to love– preparing a warm breakfast or taking an extra loaf of cranberry bread to a neighbor, reading a Christmas story with a grand-girl at the end of the day or calling a friend who needs to talk about now.  Not grand acts of love, but simple everyday kind of loving.  It’s what we’re here for– ordinary acts of extraordinary love.

“Be completely humble and gentle, be patient, bearing with one another in love.”  —  Ephesians 4:2

    • Thanks Lisa! I’m wondering how you are celebrating this Christmas?? do you have snow? Are you the baker and cook? Do you travel to see family? Hope it’s a blessed time for you and the people you love. Merry Christmas! xo

  1. Hello, I wanted to say that I feel blessed to have come across your blog, and thank you for this post. I am hoping to have an opportunity for extraordinary love today… both to give it and to feel it. Blessings to you and your family. May you feel the abundance of love around you. xo

    • So kind Debra– that’s why I loved your post. I do need to be reminded about looking for those opportunities– or I just rush through the day checking things off my list. So thank you again. Merry Christmas!! xo
