Reflections of the eternal…

One of my all time favorite websites girltalk recently posted on the idea of how the mundane can be amazing.  Their words are more eloquent than mine, it hit such a chord within me.

Today we’re excited to launch The 52home Project here at girltalk.
Every weekday for the next 52 weeks, Janelle will post a picture of ordinary life—our ordinary lives—as seen through the lense of her camera.

Ordinary is where we all live most of the time. And yet our mundane, repetitive days are full of enduring work. Homes are being built. Families are being knit together. Little souls are being shaped for eternity.
The tedious is, in fact, momentous—when done for the sake of Christ:

“…so that in everything they may adorn the doctrine of God our Savior” (Titus 2:10).

This truth can get lost in piles of laundry and dirty dishes. We need help to see the glory peaking out from behind the ordinary.

Our hope is that you’ll see your own ordinary, yet glorious life in these pictures. That you’ll glimpse the faithfulness of God that undergirds his faithful ones. That you’ll see reflections of the eternal in the everyday.
“So teach us to number our days that we will get a heart of wisdom.” Psalm 90:12



I don’t really know why I had taken this picture one night after the house was clean and I was waiting for my donald to get home.  I just was moved to.  It seemed to capture my day in a snapshot.  I think the idea of the 52home Project is phenomenal.  I’m going to think of something to call it for the wallace household.  Probably for abi too.  To see reflections of the eternal…
