"No distinction was made between the sacred and the everyday...their life was all one piece. It was all sacred and all ordinary."
~ Sue Bender ~

I have struggled with this quote this week. I would love, someday, for someone to be able to say this of me. But, alas, I am far from it.
I try to live my life with consistency. I don't like compartmentalization of it--this is my church life, this is my family life, this is my recreation life, etc. But I find that compartmentalizing is so much easier. *sigh*
I try to not miss the sacred in the ordinary and to always give God the glory for the ordinary successes in my life. But in reality, I take far too much credit and bask in more of my own glory than God's.
I make distinctions between the everyday and the sacred. And I don't like it.
I see snippets of this seamlessness in other people. I try to learn. Maybe someday...
Other's will be writing today about this same subject. You'll be able to find their interpretations here:
I know I'll be reading with interest, trying to learn to be more seamless in my life.
