A commonplace life, we say and we sigh,
But why should we sigh as we say?
The commonplace sun and 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 the commonplace lives makes His beautiful whole.
—Anonymous

Ah…a commonplace, simple life isn’t worth living? Not so! I love my simple life…but I can’t exactly say it’s commonplace, I guess. ; )

Simplicity can be such a wonderful thing. These days, life can be overly complicated, and unnecessarily so. Praise God for simple, wonderful life in Christ!
