Monday Morning Music: Joel The Lump Of Coal

Mondays can feel like a big lump of coal in your stocking.

You spend the weekend full of the holiday spirit – picking out a tree, wrapping presents, enjoying a glass of egg nog and the yearly viewing of Emmet Otter.

Then that alarm hits Monday morning, waking you up from that wonderful Christmas dream and bringing you back into the reality of the workweek.

Ugh. For all the joy and merriment of the Christmas season, we still have lumps of coal to deal with in our lives.

Maybe you could use some Monday Morning Music to get you back in the spirit.

How To Make The World 100 Times Better

The last thing you expect when you offer a homeless person some spare change is for them to pay you back.

You certainly wouldn’t expect the beggar to multiply your generosity by 100 times.

Count Your Blessings And Not Your Candy

(Click Here if you can’t see the video above.)

It’s Friday.

The Halloween Hangover is looming over your head.

Deadlines are looming.

Your belly is aching.

You spent too much time trick or treating and procrastinating.

Your week may feel like it’s falling apart.

Hey – at least your parents didn’t steal all your candy.

It’s easy to scream and blame the world around you when something you didn’t plan for steals all your joy away.

But try not to have a kneejerk reaction like a kid thinking their parent ate all their peanut butter cups.

After all, the kids didn’t know the whole story. Their parents were just playing a joke.

The problem you’re getting upset about is probably not that bad. By the time twelve o’clock rolls around you’ll have already forgotten about it.

If you’re angry about some stolen Snickers bars today, hold strong. God has a great punchline coming your way to put a smile back on your face. And just when you think your candy bag is empty, you’ll find in it more Milky Ways than you could have dreamed of.

Happy Friday.
