Is Their Such A Thing As a Normal Life?

You already probably answered this question in your head and whatever you answered is


I'm going to answer this question with this quote from Jenkins Lloyd Jones,

Anyone who imagines that bliss is normal is going to waste a lot of time running around shouting that he’s been robbed.

The fact is that most putts don’t drop, most beef is tough, most children grow up to just be people, most successful marriages require a high degree of mutual toleration, most jobs are more often dull than otherwise.

Life is like an old time rail journey…delays…sidetracks, smoke, dust, cinders and jolts, interspersed only occasionally by beautiful vistas and thrilling burst of speed. The trick is to thank the Lord for letting you have the ride.”

The normal thing about life is that it's not going to be "normal." It's our expectation of normal

that messes up the idea of normal.

The most important thing is the ride. Hold on, do your best, be good, help others, and somehow

make it as "normal" as you can.
