Monday_morning_bluesIt’s Monday morning, and I’m planning my day.

Pastor’s often take Monday as their day off because they feel so toasted after a full day of Sunday preaching and activities.  It has been documented that the adrenaline rush that comes with preaching results in a “crash” after the adrenaline subsides.

I can testify that the adrenaline crash really does happen.  However, I still don’t take Monday off.  As a friend of mine once said, “Why would I want to use a day when I feel exhausted as my day off?”  So I use Monday to write, think, rest, have lunch with folks, etc.  It’s my all purpose day.

Today’s weariness was not improved by the fact that I read in today’s paper about a friend’s arrest on DUI.  It is dismaying to me that the newspaper feels compelled to write so publicly about people’s failures.  I’m gonna pray that my friend will do well in rehab, and come back better than ever.

I got my office cleaned up last week, except for a table sitting in the hallway with a stack of stuff on it.  I bought a chrome organizer to store stuff in, however, I can’t find a place to put it.  Bev appropriately summarized it by asking, “What are you going to do with that?”  Amen.

It’s Monday all day.  Whoopee!
