Just Another Monday

Yes, Just Another Monday…Or is it?

monday-cmg-001The Mamas and the Papas sang a song about Monday’s back in 1966. I was only eleven years old, and I’m sure I remember nothing about it – but later in life Monday’s became important and this song was popular still… The song ends with these words….

Oh, Monday, Monday, won’t go away;
Monday, Monday, it’s here to stay.

Yes… Monday is here to stay so you should get used to it. Planning for it, in my experience on how others live the weekend, you should not over extend yourself on Saturday and Sunday so that Monday doesn’t find you ill prepared!

“Monday” is derived from Old English Mōnandæg and Middle English Monenday, originally a translation of Latin dies lunae “day of the Moon”.  (Source)

And some favored 12/12 scriptures….

Of how much more value then is a man than a sheep? Therefore it is lawful to do good on the Sabbath.”  (Matthew 12:12 NKJV)
