Day seven of the thrity-one day writing challenge!!! Woot Woot! It has been a struggle but so far, so good! Today’s word is SAME.
Every week, chores, grocery shopping, laundry, dishes, and cooking need to be done in addition to working my regular job and being a “Mom” uber driver. Most Sunday afternoons feel really mundane. Maybe things feel “same ole same ole” because it is the end of the weekend? I begin looking forward to the weekend on Wednesday nights! Thursdays are like pre-Fridays. One of my coworkers and I do a little dance together on Thursdays because Friday is right around the corner. On Fridays, we do a praise dance…no shout music needed.
Although I don’t hate Mondays, they don’t seem to invoke the same zeal to boogie as Fridays. On Mondays, I am three days away from the pre-Friday party.
How do we embrace the boring “same stuff” we need to do each week?
Well, I wish I had all the answers but I know it starts with my mindset. During a volunteer rally, my campus pastor, Greg Bausch, challenged volunteers to bring the atmosphere to our environments. He said this meant we had to change our mindset from we have to volunteer to we get to volunteer.
Too simple, right? Yea I know, but dreading the dishes, grocery shopping, cooking, and chauffeuring is a drag.
So it’s Monday again. Lord willing: I will get to drop off my youngest daughter at school, take care of patients, attempt to get in the pick-up line early, attend my oldest daughter’s volleyball game, reheat leftovers, clean-up the kitchen and bid my family goodnight.
I’m a BOSS!
This will NOT be the same old Monday!
What will you get to do today?
And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him. Colossians 3:17
