15. An Ordinary Moment

Jan 16, 2013 | god & grace | 2 comments

It’s just the most fun, the Photo A Day Challenge from Australian blogger Each day you take a photo using that day’s prompt as your inspiration, then post your shot on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr or your blog. Following the hashtag #fmsphotoaday, you can see the images posted by other people using the same prompt. It’s fun to see a word or phrase interpreted in so many different ways. It’s fun to see shots from around the globe. And it’s especially fun to spend the day looking at your own world in a new, more curious way.

The 15th of January was particularly interesting. Rather than looking for something yellow (#14)

or water (#11)

or starts with “t” (#8)

T-Riggs in a Tie

or circle (#13 )

I spent this day considering the ordinary moments that make up a day, a year, a life.


This was my conclusion. When you look at the ordinary moments in your life, there is quiet undertone of grace that runs throughout.

Raw and beautiful and constant.

Grace. Always there, even when unnoticed.

    I stumbled upon your blog via the @fatmumslim twitter feed. I just wanted to share that I had a similar experience while searching for the “right” picture for “an ordinary moment.” Thank you for these inspiring thoughts.
