what I am working on right now

SOME EXTRA IN THE ORDINARY

chalula

Our family loves Cholula hot sauce!

We put it on a lot of foods to spice stuff up a bit.

Interestingly, the hot sauce  is named after “Cholula”, the oldest inhabited city in Central America. It is a 2.500 year old city in Mexico and famous for its 365 churches. The term Cholula is derived from the pre-Hispanic word “Chollollan” meaning “ the place of retreat, to flee or take flight”.

The label on the back of the bottle instructs you to “give it a shake and turn the ordinary into extraodinary.” I like that! A product that is named after a city that means “retreat” is now telling us not to retreat, not to take flight but to shake things up, spice things up and be extraordinary.

I think its really important in these days of economic and emotional trying times  that people of the spirit spice things up as much as possible .

“You are the salt of the world. But if the salt should lose its taste, how can it be made salty again? It’s good for nothing but to be thrown out and trampled on by people. Matthew 5:13

In trying times ….don’t quit trying!

Think I will try to put some “extra” in the “ordinary” this week.
