Monday Blues

Welcome to a never been used before "Monday" morning. So many things to think about as you start this week, I'm sure the list is long. So do me a favor today... make sure you take time, some time, anytime... TO STOP! Stop and breathe deep into your lungs the miracle of life you've been granted. Weather you are facing some really difficult things, or heading into a season of feeling like the world is as it should be. Remember... STOP! Just stop! We spend so much time running so fast doing this thing called life; we fly by LIVING all together. So many things that are put in our path every day to fall into that give and share hope to the world. People who are in our traffic patterns that need some love, encouragement, a minute of your time. Folks, we are witnesses to each other’s lives. We account for each other, we don't go it alone. My life WILL NOT go unnoticed because of people who will ultimately find me throughout this journey I walk. Don't just wait for opportunities to bless and encourage... be on the look out for those precious invitations to change lives with the simplicity of a smile. Or "How can I help you?" God forbid "Are you ok?" People, this gift you've been given to be fully alive today, is just that... a GIFT! SO BE THAT GIFT to others. It's not convenient in light of your busy schedules and it won't make you rich, but it is the greatest joy this world has to offer you as you give your life away to the humanity in your home, across the street, and or across an ocean. We are self-centered, and entitled by nature, concerned primarily for ourselves. Lets throw those lenses off, because the world can change! We don't need to wait in dependence on the government, or any other organization to enter into this possibility. Be that change today on this Monday morning. One person at a time... every time. Be courageous enough to step outside your problems, your needs, your world, and your views and insert yourself into a world that so desperately needs your life, your gift. Your heart beats today. Your eyes see today. Your mind thinks today. Your feet walk today. Your hands work today. So if that’s true... let this day be lived and lived well. Happy Monday. ~andy
