Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come, your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.  Give us today our daily bread.  Forgive us our debts as we also have forgiven our debtors.  And lead us not into temptation but deliver us from the evil one.  Matthew 6:9 – 13

Heavenly Father thank you for this day we have never seen before.  Father God it’s Thursday!  Most people will wake up and rush into their day without prayer or meditation.  Lord, can you please guide them by focusing their rush souls.  Can you please give them your joy.  Today, Lord, someone among them will be given a life’s dilemma.  Can you please give them your insight by turning on their spiritual lights so they can see how to handle the situation.  Amen

Is There A Such Thing As Monday Morning Blues?

its-monday-morning-but-its-okOf course!  And I always have it!

Yesterday, I worked without stopping.  As a matter of fact, I didn’t take my normal breaks that come with my usual lame excuses.  I was truly on fire!  Yeah!  [Chuckle]  I know!  I just thought about Alicia Keys’ song “This Girl is On Fire” also.

Gosh, I hope I don’t have that song playing in my head all day.  Not that I don’t like it . . .  But I just don’t want it playing in my head all day!  You know what I mean!  I hope I didn’t cause you to start singing ‘This Girl is On Fire’ in your mind either.  Laughter!  Well back to the subject at hand.

I woke up early this morning but I didn’t rise early but I stayed in bed.  I watched a movie I would have never watched had I not had the blues.  Truth is I didn’t know I had the blues.  It’s been with me for so long that I feel my temporary sad state on Monday mornings is the norm.

Honestly, I just thought I was struggling with a mild case of depression.  But what is truly happening is my soul is lamenting over a loss or in my case losses.  And when I lost whatever meant so much to me I didn’t mentally and emotionally process the situation(s) to satisfy my soul’s thirst to be spiritually feed.  I didn’t supplement things needed for my hungry soul to feel feed in wholeness.

So this morning as I waited for the feelings of sadness to leave I laid in bed and watched a movie that added to my sadness.  I wonder how many other people lay in bed on Monday morning.  I wonder how many people are faced with sadness of yesterday.  I wonder do they realize they have the power to change things for the better despite missed opportunities.  I wonder do they ever try to go within their wounded souls and hug the person that loves them.

Until today I never realized why I am sad on Monday mornings.  I was once told by a dear and old friend, “Once you know something it gives you power to make changes.”  Therefore, the change I am making now is my attitude.  I am going to search for reasons within me, all day, about why I should be happy oppose to why I should allow my soul to continue to lament over missed opportunities.

For after all I am blessed and there is no one in my life that I would want to change places with.

Happy Monday!
