I look in the mirror and see a plain face, small eyes, grey hair, glasses and wrinkles. I still have a few freckles across the bridge of my nose and my eyes vary between the colors brown, yellow and green. I don't wear makeup often, and I don't fix my hair with curlers and irons. I am a wash and wear kind of woman. I see someone who is so ordinary that there is nothing about her that stands out.
Sometimes, it surprises me when I see that woman in the mirror. The inside me does not have wrinkles and shadows under her eyes. She knows what she wants to be and how to become that person. The inside me is spiritual and looks for God in everything. Even in the sadness, He is here with me. The inside me knows I am not alone even when the outside of me is crying. The inside me is serious about most things, concerned over many things, worried about nearly everything, caring of others, and giving when I see a need. The inside me loves fiercely and desires to protect those around me. The outside of me is ordinary, so much so that I blend in with any crowd and always look like someone that others know. But the inside me is unique. She looks through her Father's eyes and sees His wonder, She hears His words, and feels His grace. And she knows in her heart that He has made her in His image. And perhaps, that is not so ordinary after all.
So, now it is your turn. What can you write about ordinary in just five minutes. Don't forget to go over and link up with your own Five Minute Friday.
