Hello Monday!

Hello Monday! This is the day so many complain about. It seems especially hard for people who work. I often hear “the weekend flew by.”

Businesses which are closed on the weekends seem especially hectic on Monday’s. Have you ever tried to make an appointment with your doctor on a Monday? Getting an appointment is difficult enough; you get to listen to 15 or 20 minutes of a recorded message telling you “how important your call is” and “to please stay on the line.”

Monday’s are even hurried for me. I attend a ladies bible class and then I spend the remainder of the day playing Scrabble with mom. The hurried part is getting out of the house by 8:45. Now that we are in daylight savings time it is even harder. Since I’m retired, I find I don’t like getting out of bed while it’s still dark.

I want to give some encouragement to all of you who dread Monday’s. I love these verses any day of the week and they seem especially helpful on Monday mornings.

Where can I go from your Spirit? Where can I flee from your presence?  If I go up to the heavens, you are there; if I make my bed in the depths, you are there.  If I rise on the wings of the dawn, if I settle on the far side of the sea, even there your hand will guide me, your right hand will hold me fast. Ps 139:7-10

I worked for many years outside the home. I can sympathize with you now, whether it’s work or school or any other task which you may dread on Monday, try to remember, you are never alone.

    When I retired, one of the many joys I encountered was on Sunday night, after church, I’d think about tomorrow being Monday. Then I’d smile and think, “But I don’t have to get up and go to work!” 🙂 I used to have a calendar on my desk, and on of the pages declared: “Thought for Monday: And God said, ‘let there be light’!” 🙂

    I did the same thing Judy. My husband always had many more days off than I did and that made it ever “less joyous” to go to work when he got to say home.
    I love the “Thought for Monday” and am always thankful for the light! 🙂
