The brother/sister duo, The Carpenters, had a huge hit in 1971 with their song, “Rainy Days and Mondays.” There’s one thing about Mondays- they come around every seven days! I’m sure that some Mondays are perfectly good days. I mean, God created the heavens on the second day of the week. How awesome is that? But no other day of the week yields the groans when the alarm clock goes off, like Monday, especially when it’s dark and rainy like today was.
We usually think of Mondays as the beginning of the work week. It’s the day to “get back in the swing of things.” Mondays are good days to plan projects or set goals that you’d like to accomplish. Mondays are also, the most common day for diets to start. (Of course, Tuesdays are the day that we usually give up on that endeavor.) Yet, poor Monday is probably the least favorite day of the week.
But the only way Monday wouldn’t be the first day of the work week would be if we worked seven days a week. I don’t think any of us would be fond of that idea. We must remember that “this is the day that the Lord hath made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.” (Psalms 118:24) Even on a Monday! God Bless, Courtney
