Mondays are pretty good for me.
On Mondays I wake up to a cup of coffee from Buona Caffe, take a long walk with my dog Roc, and plan out a week full of possibilities.
On Mondays I usually get a chance to go running and spend some time working on future blog posts.
On Mondays I gather with my closest friends and watch wrestling, something that a bunch of guys in their mid-twenties are probably too old to still do.
On Mondays the hopes of a new week are abloom. The problems of the week before have passed.

Sometimes you need the Monday Morning Music to get you going.
Last week I stumbled across a record for 20 cents at Salvation Army – “Catch Bull At Four” by Cat Stevens. On it was the perfect Monday Morning Music – a song called “Silent Sunlight”.
Today is my first day away from my full-time job in almost five years. Yet this song reminded me the work has only just begun.
You may be out of a job as well this morning. Or you may be stepping into a job you’re not in love with. Or you may be stepping into a project you’ve been putting off.
Whatever Monday you’re stepping into, simply sing a song of love and truth into everything you do. Be strong. Be courageous. Do the work. Rest your eyes. Wake up. Do it again.
Keep pushing through, having faith in what the Lord is bringing you into with each new sunlight.
I’d love to know – what are you facing down this Monday? How can we support each other as we do the work of a new week?
