CELEBRATING MERRY MONDAY more Monday Blues at my house.

With a face like this looking at you, how could you help but have a happy day!

There were plenty of Monday's that I dreaded. The ones that were cold and icy outside were usually the worst. In the summertime I looked forward to most mornings as the sun was up and it was warm out. When I worked, payroll was done on Mondays and it was a very fast paced day.

Usually when we complain, it is because we have too much time on our hands. When we are extremely busy, our days go by very quickly and we often don’t have time to think of whether it’s Monday or Friday

I have always thought that we are responsible to keep a light burning in our souls and creating joyful moments in the midst of the hectic world is what gives light to others and nurtures light in our own soul.

Just like a smile is the light in the window of our faces to let the world know someone is home...

Filling my mind with encouragement and truth always gives me guidance and my body a boost.

Sundays have always my R&R day. God designed for us to have and to take rest because without it, we do not endure well or see Him clearly or have the strength to believe in order to get perspective.

I got my rest and refreshment just as I always do so I'm ready for this Monday and I hope you all are too!

Have a Merry Monday everyone!
