“...I will bless the LORD at all times: his praise shall continually be in my mouth” (Psalms 34:1).
Last night I was typing a comment to an old friend on facebook. I started the comment with the word "woohoo" in response to her son cooking dinner for the family. I was happily remembering him as a toddler, when we first met and thinking about how much time had passed.
My phone autocorrected my "woohoo" to "Elohim".
It reminded me that God inhabits the praises of His people- as if He were in that silly word of joy, Elohim in the woohoo. Sacred in eucharisteo. Holy in the mundane. God in my every moment.
It made me laugh out loud, that Papa would choose to remind me of his ever present joy in praise through such an unexpected coincidence.
I want to live a life of thanks.
Look for extraordinary in the ordinary.
Find grace in the everyday.
