I woke to the sound of thunder off in the distance this morning.
“It’s going to be a great day.”
I meant every part of that statement that flittered through my thoughts.
Raining or not, it’s going to be a great day.
Monday or not, it’s going to be a great day.
Hot and humid or not, it’s going to be a great day.
I chose to get up early and make the most of this Monday.
I began to wonder how many days I have let slip past me, how many I have not appreciated or lived to its fullest, or how many I let be determined by the day’s experiences and circumstances. Probably too many to mention.
That makes me sad.Every day we are given is a gift. Why would I not do what I could to make each one of them great, beautiful, incredible?
Why do many of us dread Mondays? Just because it’s at the beginning of the week? We should be thrilled we have them, shouldn’t we? A day that ushers in a new week of opportunities, and possibilities. A day that can be a springboard for the seven that are ahead.
Thinking about it in these ways, I become very thankful for today. I am making the most of this Monday! To seek God’s best for me. To live, to love, to experience life in every way I can through it. To make memories, to invest in others’ lives, to appreciate every blessing in it… both big and small. To honor God in every part of this day.
And at the end of it when I lay my head on my pillow, I can rest soundly knowing I lived this day to its fullest, and I did everything I could to make it great.
Join me, won’t you? Let’s make today memorable. Even if it is a Monday!
As I glanced out my east windows just now, this is what I saw…
The starting of a beautiful day…
God bless you, friend! Happy Monday!
