Daily · Love · Seeing · Thanks

the foundation of the ordinary…

Yesterday’s thoughts… of drama overshadowing the ordinary… have me looking about for the blessing of the everyday….

What holds up the everyday…? the sunrise… and set… the moon in all its phases… the gradual change of the perpetual seasons… slowly… slowly… ever-changing… each day… the ordinary…?

Behind it all… and underneath… is hesed… the Hebrew word translated often as… steadfast love… God’s hesed

His loving kindness… endures… daily… keeps life going… and is often hard to see… easy to forget… or neglect… because it is so common…

It’s not the stuff of the well-planned and prepared… not cultivated… it just appears… without any work on our behalf…

wildflowers… springing up…

new green… sprouting…

wisps… on a blue skies…

His hesed… it’s all around… holding all things… together…

Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good,
for his steadfast love endures forever.
Give thanks to the God of gods,
for his steadfast love endures forever.
Give thanks to the Lord of lords,
for his steadfast love endures forever…
Psalm 136:1-3 ESV
(my emphasis)
Have you seen it today… His steadfast love…?
