On Sad Days

Someone decided that the third Monday of January would be the saddest day of the year. They reasoned that we have charge card bills from December, the rent is due and the weather is likely to be bad.

Blue Monday they call it. So unfair. Blue is my favorite color and besides, I like Mondays because it means a fresh start to the week. 

Do I have blue days? Of course, but will I let some totally-unknown-to- me-person tell me when to be sad! NO, I WILL NOT! Anyway, we are well past that fearful day and life goes on. Relax. January is done and we are in March. Hurrah!

Get through your personal blue days by getting some fresh air. Can’t walk outside? Put your coat on and sit by an open window for a bit.  Move, move and move some more; drink lots of water, get a good night sleep, get dressed and phone a friend.

But the best help of all is to know that God is with us, loving us, hoping to encourage us.

Behold, the virgin shall become pregnant and give birth to a Son, and they shall call His name Emmanuel—which, when translated, means, God with us.

(Matthew 1:23, AMP)
