Monday is the best day of the week.
They are my “day off,” which means I get to stay home with our 14-month-old son Felix. It is my one of my greatest joys to use my time to try and connect with him for a full day each week. So far today we’ve enjoyed two meals together, time outside watching the cars go by, a chase up and down the stairs (several times), a dubstep dance party (Felix is learning how to wait for the bass to drop), and some time in prayer (for a few people we really love).
Monday is the hardest day of the week.
My “day off” really means “always on”; not only am I taking care of Felix, but I am also doing my best to get household chores done. Between preparing meals, changing diapers, doing laundry and cleaning the house, there’s not much time for anything else. I am so impressed by those who do this kind of work every day of the week!
As I reflect on the simple joys and difficulties that Monday brings, I am reminded of the simplicity of how God works. He uses ordinary, little things to build his Kingdom and make his Name known throughout the earth.
