It is Monday, we woke up to a Monday, and we started our Monday, just like she likes. I have decided Monday is a girl, actually she is the mean girl in your 8th grade gym class. You know the one, and just thinking about her makes you want to groan. She is sneaky and mean, and she knows just how to frustrate you.
Monday give us, morning stomach aches, knots in our shoes, and forgotten gym clothes. Monday give us, forgotten breakfast drinks and dried on spilled cereal milk. She gives us ruined paintbrushes, scratchy pencils, and lost pens, Monday gives us red lights, slow traffic and big changes. Monday gives us 2 different glasses of spilled milk at dinner, and just before bed, she gives us forgotten homework. Monday gave us fights between sisters, and bits of trash on the floor. Monday gave us ruined plans, and difficult tasks.
Monday gave us a chance to see God’s grace from the knots in our shoes to spilled milk.
Monday might have been that mean girl from gym class, but Tuesday, she is coming, she is your best friend in 8th grade, you found her after crying in the locker room because of Mean girl Monday.
I can’t wait for Tuesday. Tuesday is a new day, and a new chance to see God’s mercies, and to experience His faithfulness.
go hug your kids, they just had Monday too, and they need your love and comfort
