I was up several times throughout the night.
The children calling “daddy” from different bedrooms will do that.
But when the day begins with appointments you do not remember making …
and work equipment not working …
and banging your head off of a low hanging piece of duct work …
you have to ask yourself: Do Mondays always have to hurt?
They probably don’t, even though it is difficult to see that when your head is still throbbing.
So, this is what I am going to do.
God has transformed suffering. He has turned it into the fuel that makes Saints.
I am going to do something ancient. I am going to get in step with our most ancient brothers and sisters.
I am going to offer the troubles of this troublesome Monday for you and your intentions.
I am going to pray that the worse I feel …
and the more bothered I become with low hanging duct work …
or yet another phone call that makes little sense …
I will be asking God to send you His graces.
And why would I do that?
Because God has transformed suffering. He has turned it into the fuel that makes Saints.
So friends, have a great Monday.
Give everything to God.
And know that you have LOTS of fuel coming your way.
