Holy Mondays

Lisa and I are moving towards our 40th anniversary. Hey, it’s not until December, but this is a special year and you just can’t celebrate too much.

For almost 40 years we’ve tried to use Mondays as our catch up and personal day. We’ve been in the ministry all of our lives and what for some folks might be a day, or weekend, off, Saturday and Sunday are usually busier working hours for us. So making a practice of decompressing on Mondays has helped us to be sure to create time for each other And time for me to be alone and make a GIF or two. We believe that if God took a day off in the beginning, we might need to do the same. And we’ve been so vocal about it over the years that we’ve learned a lot of our ministry friends do the same thing and call it “Holy Monday”.

Today, after spending time in my Continuing Education project of learning how to make an original GIF (I think I’m so late to that game that it’s kinda like someone who just found out you can actually order your groceries online and have em delivered), Lisa and I eventually were able to take a walk with Indy. She was very grateful. 

So much is going on in life, it’s hard to keep up. Technology advances so fast, well, here I am making my first GIF… at least it’s not BINGO… yet.

And I mean no offense to BINGO players. It’s just, this week we begin moving my parents across the country. I’m very excited, but it’s one of those milestones. They’ll be living near us in a great independent living apartment building. A great spot, and as far as I know, no BINGO.

But they do have a computer room.
