Thank Goodness It’s Monday

Each Monday, the traditional work week begins. And in the 27 years I’ve been with my current (Fortune 100) employer, I’ve never had a traditional schedule.

So I get it.

Not everyone works 9-5, M-F.

In fact, I worked this past Saturday AND Sunday, far away from home to top it off.

Twenty-seven years.

And my wife, she’s worked for the same Fortune 100 organization as me.

She’s had weekends off for 26 years.

Twenty-six years.

Whatever day your “Monday” is, find the blessings in it.

Because if you don’t, who will? Someone else? Doubtful.

Monday Is A Special lace, Isn't It?
Monday Is A Special Place, Isn't It?

  1. I haven’t had one of those kind of jobs since 1997. It was a job at an institution of higher learning. 8-5 Monday to Friday. 3 weeks vacation, 2 weeks sick leave, 12 paid holidays. People still complained about too much work and had a slower work ethic than others.

    There is only one day that matters. The Lord’s Day. The rest are just days of the week where stuff happens.

  2. David, thank you for your comments. May I offer an additional perspective? Sunday is the symbolic day of rest, the Lord’s Day.

    I’m of a firm belief that everyday is the Lord’s Day, not in the traditional sense, but in the sense that each and every day is a gift.

    When we have what seems to be an infinite number of days, it’s easy to lose sight of this. If we only had 12 days left to live, how are perspective might change.

  3. I do thank Him daily in prayer for the day we are in. Since He is the creator, it is only right to pay respects and honor the day by recognizing His accomplishment.
