Good Monday Morning 9.26.22
Happy Monday friends! I hope you had a good weekend. I was finally able to get out of the house:) We walked around an outdoor fall festival on Saturday. Our first for the season….and what a beautiful Saturday it was! Later that evening, we were able to celebrate birthdays with the sweet gift I received from my friend. I mentioned it under “something loved” in this post. It was a great family evening! Yesterday was a full day at church. There were already plans on the calendar that I could not change and I am grateful that God gave me enough health (and voice) to enjoy a special time with my Junior Church kiddos (they are such a joy to me)….but, now I am done. As in, depleted. Whatever less than ideal amount of energy/strength I had somehow accrued during my couch time last week has been completely drained. I’m feeling every ounce of my age in this new decade of life – ha.
But….not complaining. It was a beautiful weekend and I am grateful for all of it. And now I have Monday (hooray!) to get refreshed and start anew. Although slowly:) Did you have an extra blessing this past weekend? Share it with me. Here’s to a healthy week ahead!!

It sounds like you are still recovering from the flu. Your body still needs a lot of rest. I am glad that you had such a good, if tiring, weekend (and isn’t it a blessing to not have to go to work on Monday?). Our areas must have had similar weather over the weekend. How nice to get to be out and enjoy it at a festival. You must be such a blessing to your Junior Church kiddos. We had a young man get baptized at church on Sunday. I know him (a little) from subbing at school. He is such a great kid and I was so happy to see him get baptized. Happy Monday!
Being at home on Mondays is the best!! Trying to rest…and working on the whole resting patiently!!:) Happy Monday to you too, friend!
I really felt encouraged as I read this post! I agree, you are probably still run down because of being sick. I hope you take all the time you need to get back to yourself. The Fall Festival sounds fun! Here in Idaho, we have, Spud Days in our little city…always a fun day, and you get a free potato with all the trimmings! When I am teaching youth at church, they always bless me way more that I bless them. I’ll bet you’re a wonderful teacher! Enjoy this beautiful week!!
Spud Days….that sounds like a yummy festival!! Hope you are having a great day, Barbara!
It sounds like you really needed a clear Monday to recharge your battery. When you’ve been unwell it is so hard not to overdo things once you start to feel better, we are all guilty of that. Hope you have woken this morning with replenished energy!
