    Just now, reading your blog. We both were glad and appreciated your sermons. As always they gave us things to think about and to correct in our lives. I know Sunday is such a busy
    day and a very long day for you….no wonder you don’t care much for Monday. Maybe its because we are older we are happy to awake every morning feeling ready for the new day, that
    God has allowed. We are really looking to the date He calls us home as then we will truly rejoice every day with Him..

    Poor Pastor Jeff, you are admitting to having the same feelings that we all have on Monday mornings. That is why many of us at Meadow make it a daily habit to read your blogs, it is like getting refreshment on the days that we really need it. We appreciate a pastor who is open and honest, not holier than thou, like most of the pastors I have had in the past. By the way, you must be really exhausted, because there were several typos in your blog, which is very unlike you.
    Get some needed rest!!!

    I had a opportunity to Love Monday’s on my last Job.
    I had to do rotating shifts and days off.
    I would have different days of the week off too every week it would change.
    When I had Sunday’s and Monday’s as my days off..I Loved it.
    I could actually sleep on Monday’s and Love it.
    But that is the only time Monday’s are good.
    But I agree with the rest of your take on Monday’s.

    My heart is filled with thankfulness
    To Him who reigns above
    Whose wisdom is my perfect peace
    Whose every thought is love
    For every day I have on earth
    Is given by the King
    So I will give my life my all
    To love and follow Him

    Keith Getty & Stuart Townend

    I believe “EVERY day” means just that, brother!

      “I have heard many such things: miserable comforters are {you}.” – Job 16:2

      David, how dare you confront my bad attitude with good theology!

    I take exception to your depiction of us older types. Most of us can handle not just 1 glass of Ovaltine but 2 or even three! However, I do admit to being forgetful regarding those Depends things….now, where did I put that package?

    • jeff lyle on April 16, 2012 at 8:49 am

      I chose the age of 87 because I didn’t think anyone at that age would read my blog. You are a sprite 66 so consider yourself relegated to the category of “mature adult”. By the way, those Depends you are looking for are on aisle #8 of your local Rite-Aid.
