Monday Musings

"Finally, my brethren, whatsoever is true, whatsoever is honest, whatsoever is just, whatsoever is pure, whatsoever is lovely, whatsoever is of good report, if there be any virtue and if there be any praise, think on these things."-  Philippians 4:8

Oh, Monday. 

Good morning to you, again. 

As I posted last Monday, sometimes it is hard to focus on those whatsoevers on Monday morning.

Especially on a Monday morning where the sky is quickly turning gloomy and it's the Monday after a glorious fall break...

When all I really want to do is lay in the bed and read and take naps and snack on blueberry cake donuts from Krispy Kreme.

Just keeping it real.

I love my job... absolutely love it...

But if I am not very careful I can get away from thinking the whatsoevers and start wallowing...

It's at this very moment that I tend to start listing the things that I need to do... but I'm not going to subject my readers to that nonsense.  Instead, I'm going to think on...

glorious golden sunrises and sweatshirts warm from the dryer, crisp autumn air as I walk in the sunshine under blue skies, the smell of rain, orange and red leaves painting a landscape of God's handiwork, Volleycats lined up in the front of a country church and fried chicken and fellowship, the first sip of Diet Coke from a straw and His Word and talking with Caleb on the way to school, I love you and See you later and stray kisses from nowhere landing on your cheek, surprising. 

What are you thinking on this Monday morning?

#write31days of Philippians 4:8...


  1. Sounds like you're counting gifts and keeping your eyes fixed on Jesus.

  2. I'm visiting from the FB 31 Dayers page. Sometimes it's hard to take our thoughts captive and direct them where they need to go instead of where they wander, but it's so worth it. BTW, my Krispy Kreme faves are the apple filled and the fresh hot glazed ones. It's probably a good thing there are no Krispy Kremes near us...

  3. I love Monday mornings (weird, I know). But I love all fresh starts and new beginnings ... so that is how Monday's feel to me. But, I do have to force myself to stay away from the weekend Krispy Kremes.

  4. What a sweet post! I'm thinking about the gorgeous camping trip we just back from (while I do the laundry and put away all the camping stuff ;)). God's majesty just blows my mind.

  5. Great post! I thought about how great it was that someone gave me an umbrella as I headed into a poring rain!

  6. Mmmm... This morning, it was gloomy here too. I was thinking on the beauty of fall, even in the rain... and the smell of pumpkin cookies, and wrangling my kiddos. :) Blessed to "meet" you here today. :)
