Do Mondays Always Have to Hurt?


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.




in Christ,


patrick
