All I wanted to be was ordinary. An ordinary family with ordinary kiddos and an ordinary husband.

But, plans change when we make decisions that are contrary to God's purpose for us.

I didn't want to be a single mother. I didn't want to be 25 and unmarried. I didn't want to be different.

But, when we let go and let God do things out of the norm, extraordinary things happen.

Who meets their husband on the internet, instantly becomes a momma to three after they say I do and moves 1300 miles away from the home they have lived in for 27 years? Not someone ordinary.

I had no idea what God had in store for me 13 years ago when I started chatting with vikefan28, but God sure did. And He never called me to be ordinary. He called me to be different, peculiar even.

But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light; 1 Peter 2:9

Praying I live my calling every day for an extraordinary God that has extraordinary planned for me.

So thankful that God calls each of us to be extraordinary! Have a lovely weekend!


I am not sure how it started. I guess maybe it was a genuine illness at first. Then the teenager babysat a little late on a Saturday night. ...
