    What have you seen that was extraordinary, within the ordinary?

    Or, when did the ordinary turn into the extraordinary for you? This question relates to an experience I had while walking on trails in nature.

    As an Instructor of nurses who are pursuing their Bachelor's degree, I see example after example of ordinary women and men doing extraordinary things for their fellow man...way above and beyond job description. 
    Whether staying over the clock to hold a hand (without pay) for someone who has no family and is dying to using volunteer hours to minister to the homeless, the traumatized, many others...these nurses are angels on Earth.  Yet, they see themselves as quite ordinary.

      We certainly relate. Our hub, 'What Does it Really Mean to Be of Service?' tells the story of our experience with being caregivers together. It helped me to move 'from the head to the heart.'

      No man is an island; yet it seems so due to the levels of hostility rapidly circulating and growing in our physical, and even internet societies. One must asks themselves: WHY do we hate? WHAT good has it ever done?

    Coming into Macquarie Island in the sub-Antarctic on the MV Nella Dan in the pre-dawn twighlight on a high-latitudes autumn.   There must have been around ten thousands penguins swam out to welcome our arrival.   To see these flightless birds flying through water as they dived under the ship, then poked their heads up to see us over and over again.    There are an estimaed 3,000,000 penguins on Macquarie and a good proportion must have come out just to see us that day.   It stays in my mind as something 'extraordinary within the ordinary,' only wish I had lost the photos I'd taken at the time.

    Ordinarily, people who call themselves go church, sometimes even, every Sunday, religiously.
    Extraordinarily, if one corners one of these stellar believers, and ask them,"Do you believe that Jesus arose from the dead, on the third day or any day, for that matter?" many of the honest ones will say, "I don't know.
    Maybe, however, what I think is extraordinary, may actually be, ordinary.
    Who knows?
    Regards,
    Dr. Haddox

      This I believe: that Christ came in the flesh and died once for all men and is resurrected and in heaven mediating for all sinners; The Father, Son and Holy Ghost; 7th day Sabbath (saturday); 10 Commandments, second coming, baptism, grace. More?

    On ordinary walks in nature, the extraordinary happened. A fog inside lifted while looking into the mirror surfaces of the water. What have you seen that was extraordinary, within the ordinary? read more

    All of God's creation in itself. They are all extraordinary, including people.

    When I began living the results of GOD in Heaven's Holy Spirit transforming my life; He is God, not a "higher state" of existence or a wiccan spirit. My God in Heaven is God of All, and there is none else.

      Every person has a unique path and perspective. What I love is finding what is common among us and sharing gems of insight with each other. Whatever you choose to share, I will respect you for who you are.

    Yes the ordinary life event of the birth of a baby, is always quite extraordinary, to say the very least.
