i loath mondays.

i'm not sure what it is about monday mornings that just make me grumpy and blah.  every time.  i love my life. i love my job...but none of that seems to matter on a monday.  i typically bribe myself with starbucks on monday mornings... hoping it will jolt me out of the monday funk blues.  it also never fails that apparently over the weekend things fall apart that i so eagerly (sarcasm) get to put back together come monday morning. 

it always seems the better the weekend at home... the worse the monday blues.  by the time noon rolls around, i'm usually back to my chipper happy self, but for the time being... grump!

i often get frustrated with myself that i allow my emotions to control me from time to time... ok, a lot.  God made me an emotional being... and even though that can be wonderful, it definitely has its downside.  i'm reminded every morning, as my alarm goes off, that "this is the day that the Lord has made... i am to rejoice and be glad in it..." this is quite the cattle prod to a morning challenged person, such as myself.  today i am also reminded to allow Him to love and care for me through out my day... bad mood or good mood.  as i dig into His word this morning, looking for Him to lift my head out of the grim of my bad attitude... i'm asking him to speak to me through His word... to encourage and strengthen me for my week. 

Psalm 63:1, "Oh God, you are my God.  I earnestly search for you.  My soul thirsts for you; my whole body longs for you in this parched and weariness."
