Holy in the Daily
I’m Susan Gaddis and I reside on the beautiful Central Coast of California amid the rolling hills and oak trees. As a Christian I am learning to walk with the Holy in the ordinary twists and turns of daily life. Therese of Lisieux, in her Story of a Soul, said that Christ was most abundantly present to her not “during my hours of prayer . . . but rather in the midst of my daily occupations.” What a wonderful approach to a sometimes-boring life—engaging Christ in our ordinary chores and activities! I also appreciate how Kathleen Norris regards the ordinary. “It is the daily tasks, daily acts of love and worship that serve to remind us that our religion is not strictly an intellectual pursuit . . . but a way of life.” This blog tracks my reflections as a woman, wife, mother, author, and pastor, trying to experience the Holy in the daily. The adventure of finding the Holy in the daily, then, takes many twists and turns. I invite you to join me on my journey of discovery.
