Monday Blues...Blue is a nice color though :)

So it's Monday, SUPER hot, supposed to be 105 today, and well, it's Monday.  Trying desperately to have a positive outlook, but the weekend is so faaaarrr. 
Ok, so I'm done complaining.  I had a pretty good morning so far.  Got up and spent some time reading the Bible.  Bryan and I are doing this year long plan for reading the entire Bible.  It's great to be able to read for myself so many things that I had forgotten, and be reminded of promises that help me throughout my day.  The other day I read Isaiah 44.  Verses 2 and 3 really caught my attention. "I will go before you and make the rough places smooth; I will shatter the doors of bronze and cut through their iron bars. I will give you the treasures of darkness and hidden wealth of secret places, so that you may know that it is I.  The Lord, the God of Israel that calls you by name."  Just a good reminder that not only is God with me right now. He is going before me and showing me things, hidden things, that only He can.  It's an exciting and powerful passage.
After that I headed to the gym for a easy run and to lift a little.  Then came to work and enjoyed my overnight oats that I made yesterday.  SOOOOO good!  You just throw all the ingredients together and put them in the fridge overnight.  I tried raspberries, blueberries and carob with some chia seeds.  Very filling too, although I did want to lick the bowl :) 
Yesterday we had a meeting after church with the other youth leaders to start helping out there.  Bryan and the new youth pastor have been meeting and talking about where Bryan could plug in.  They have come up with an idea for a leadership team for the the kids.  I will be helping too!  So I think it will be a great opportunity.  We are excited to see what God does through it all. 
Hope you have a great Monday :)
