It is a Monday however and a whole week lies ahead, stuffed with activity. The little girls chatter away as they eat their breakfast, happily unaware of all that their week holds. To them this week is just like last week which in turn, is to them just like most of the other weeks before:
Daddy's Day Off is the first day of the week which is followed by...
Family Night which usually involves dessert and a TV show to finish the day...
Awana Day is how they speak of Wednesday and it is the centerpiece of our week until...
Co-op Day meets us first thing on Thursdays. We're up and out of the house early on this day and Daddy is rarely home for dinner on these evenings.
Monk Day is Friday and we used to count on an entire evening of back-to-back episodes of our favorite show. However, our big kids aren't home much anymore on Monk nights and Monk himself has been missing from the channel line up, so our Friday may soon experience a make over.
Football Day is what we call Saturdays with all of the expected fun and food and hollering you'd imagine and then lots of preparation and activity preparing for our next day that you might not imagine...
Church Day is our Sunday which is often full to bursting with plans and people and most important worship with our church family both in the morning at worship service and in the evening as we sit in various classes and learn more and interact more with our folks. We put in a full day and so when Mondays rolls back around we are all so happy that it's once again Daddy's Day Off!
This week we've got extra activities before Family Night, before and instead of Awana Night, we are all going separate ways on Monk day, and though Football Day looks pretty good, there's some extra activity to be accomplished as well.
I woke up knowing in my heart that though my days are a flurry of activity and full of change and adjustment, my God remains constant and steady and I'm praising Him for that!
Blessings on your Daddy's Day Off er...your Monday!
Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.
