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.
