On Mondays, I collect our garbage into plastic bags and place them in the provided receptacle (recycles go into a separate container) to be collected early on Tuesday mornings.
When we started this schedule years ago, Mondays became a special day for me. It represented more than uncluttering the house of waste, but a means for me to observe this day in more significant ways.
It follows the Lord’s Day by which we began a new week, receiving His Word and worshipping with His people; spending the day with Him in prayer and meditation. It is reasonable then to go into the new week by putting into practice what we learned and experienced the day before. As we are spending the remainder of this year in the thirteenth chapter of Hebrews, we are continuing to carry the blessings that are ours through every phase of life, especially the difficult times.
