148. A Rescue from Your Daily Rut

Out of the Ordinary 148

Key Conversation Points:

  • Who remembers the tag line for our new and improved podcast? Lisa-Jo is working on it. We've all been there.
  • Join Lisa-Jo and Christie as they discuss the lowbar of hygiene, losing tempers at stupid socks and men who don't use their phones for incoming calls.
  • Christie, "The ordinary can feel like the quicksand that's got a hold of us."
  • Our work can feel wasted in the routine but there is a renewal of all things.
  • Does our refrigerator really give us a look into our mental state? Heaven help us!
  • How is it possible to commune with God in the daily, ordinary tasks?
  • Nicole M. Roccas writes in her book, Time and Despondency: Regaining the Present in Faith and Life, "Time...becomes not a fatal loop of mortality but an upward spiral, a never ending dance of love drawing us farther up and farther into the eternally loving God."
  • How is there beauty in dying flowers and how can it parallel our life? Lisa-Jo learned a lot from Floret Flowers on IG.
