Living for the Weekend - TGIF

Living for the weekend. Most people do it and I must admit I am one of those people. I try to get through Monday-Friday as quickly as possible. The faster the week goes by the better because I can enjoy some much needed time off work. I do wonder though, if I did not have a job to go to Monday-Friday, would I really anticipate the weekend as much? Basically, I just got to thinking, every day is a blessing. Every day that we wake up and are given another opportunity to live our lives, enjoy our family, do what we are put here on earth to do is a blessing but why is it so hard to see that? Why is facebook always filled up with “Thank God it’s Friday” posts? Why do we not thank God for Monday, Tuesday and all the rest of the days?
We have been so programmed to go, go, go that we don’t stop to enjoy the moment, whether it is the weekend or not. There is beauty in everyday, every hour, every minute. There are things happening all the time that are really something special to praise God for, but we easily forget. These are my thoughts right now as I began to think how excited I am to be entering the weekend. There is more to life than the weekend.
Dear Heavenly Father, help us to realize that every day is a gift from you. Each and every day you grant us mercy and grace but we seem to overlook our blessings. Help us to have an appreciative and thankful heart for each day we are alive, regardless of the day of the week. Let us not look forward to Friday, but to each new day that you allow us to wake and live our purpose. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
