Romans 12:1-2

So here's what I want you to do, God helping you: Take your everyday, ordinary life—your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life—and place it before God as an offering. Embracing what God does for you is the best thing you can do for him. Don't become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without even thinking. Instead, fix your attention on God. You'll be changed from the inside out. Readily recognize what he wants from you, and quickly respond to it. Unlike the culture around you, always dragging you down to its level of immaturity, God brings the best out of you, develops well-formed maturity in you. Romans 12:1-2

I started Our Ordinary Life a little over a year ago. Happy Belated Anniversary to me! -- I debated about the title because ordinary sounded so plain. I even explained it in an early post. The title came from the Romans Scripture on my blog that directs us to present our every day life before God.

We do have everyday life of course and most times it's pretty ordinary yet at the same time life is pretty extraordinary (especially life raising boys!). We also strive to be extraordinary for God.

extraordinary defs - a : going beyond what is usual, regular, or customary b : exceptional to a very marked extent
So because of my orginal debate and several recent comments (thank you for the encouragement), I have decided to add "extra-" in front of my blog title. I'm not changing the address though, because I don't want to!
