The Ordinary Stuff of Life

My friend, Sarah, posted this quote on her Facebook the other day. It so summed up much of what I've thinking on in recent days that I just couldn't help myself... I stole it for my blog! :)

"It is a great thing to be on the mount with God, but a man only gets there in order that afterwards he may get down among the devil-possessed and lift them up. We are not built for the mountains and the dawns and the aesthetic affinities, those are for moments of inspiration, that is all. We are built for the valley, for the ordinary stuff we are in, and that is where we have to prove our mettle." - Chambers
