Oh Monday, how quickly it rolls around. How was the weekend in your corner of the world?!?
Today was one of those weird days. The kind when five o'clock rolls around and I do the mental tally of everything I accomplished, it's just slightly more than nothing. These are the days I struggle with finding my value in what I have crossed off my to-do list.
On the days when I wash laundry, keep the dirty dishes moving, have supper ready before eight o'clock and manage to have less than 15 piles of stuff heaped around, I feel pretty awesome. I give myself several mental, emoticon high-fives and feel rather impressed with my amazing self motivational skills. It's like I could write a book or something. . .
But today I can't boast of that. Instead as my scatterbrained, unmotivated self stares me back in the face, I am reminded where my value really lies.
I belong to Jesus.
I am loved because I am His.
The most valuable thing I can do each day is remember that worship with my words, my actions, my thoughts. . . that is how I can honor Jesus.
Of course it doesn't hurt when I manage to make a batch of gluten-free zucchini brownies. . . even though they did spill and burn in my oven.
In an effort to make this Monday just a little bit better, here's some stuff you need to check out around the world wide webs.
