Why do I love Mondays?

Why do I “Love My Mondays”? I put my heart into getting ready for Sunday all week!! The prep doesn’t usually start until Monday is over so Monday is kind of a catchall day for me--no particular schedule. How about you?

Actually, my house needs some attention after the weekend. Unless we are expecting guests, on Sunday mornings our focus is to get out of the house to church on time, even early—which has always been important to me...so forget about making the bed and washing the dishes! Now that’s hard for me because I have 'aesthetic eyes' (can't stand if things are out of place)—so it drives me crazy to come into my kitchen or bedroom with those two things out of order. It does work, though, to push me quickly past the kitchen and into the inviting unmade bed for a Sunday power nap!! Anyway, I can take care of it on Monday!

My favorite part of Monday is to do just anything with my husband—sometimes that even means cleaning out the garage. (It’s his day off!) Thankfully, daughter number 4 got me out of that a few days ago by helping her Dad!!

Did you ever think about the numerous blessings of a public library? “Peace!” Sometimes we peruse the stacks, then find a quiet table to write or read away from the frequent interruptions at home—even on a Monday!

“Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on Thee.” Isaiah 26:3
