I don’t know about y’all, but I am having a terrible case of the Mondays! I have just been in a funk today and can’t seem to snap out of it. Isn’t it weird sometimes when you are having a terrible day, God just seems to have a hand in snapping you out of it? I decided to go for a run tonight around a park nearby our house. I usually don’t run around the park because in the summer the lake gets all buggy and smells funky, so I usually avoid it, but tonight I decided to give it a whirl. Well, I’m glad I did because it made me realize I need to make the most of my Monday, funk and all.
So, I drag my lazy rear out of the car and start off on my run and start to notice these little messages written in sidewalk chalk every so often. They said all sorts of things like:
“Look! There’s a pretty view!”
“Don’t worry try again tomorrow.”
“Do something unexpected!”
and as I was rounding the last stretch to finish up:
“You’re going to be fine.”
Yeah, if that was some sort of sign, then I don’t know what is! I was about to get in my car and saw a couple with some sidewalk, so I figured this was their handy work. I told them how much I appreciated all their messages and they smiled ear to ear! Isn’t amazing how something so little can make you’re day turn around:)
This also made me think about how everyday on Earth is an amazing gift from God, and I need to treat it as such…even if it is a Monday!
