I wonder if anyone but me has ever noticed that the days of the week seem to have their own feel to them. I'm talking about a physical feeling that is all encompassing. Besides the feel of the day, the very name of the day seems to impart what the day is all about.
If you don't think that is correct, then just think of what the feeling is that you get from the day Friday. Say the name out loud: Friday! Sounds almost like a sigh of relieve, a release of tensions doesn't it? What about Saturday? Think about this...the name Saturday rolls off the tongue totally different than any other day of the week. Again, say it out loud: Saturday! It sounds a little longer, a little slower. Saturday to me sounds like sitting by the pool, lounging at the patio, doing things just a little slower than the other days of the week.
Now to the best day of them all... Sunday! What a special day this is! Sunday has an almost musical sound to it. Try it: Sunday! It comes out of the mouth almost with the same sound as the beginning of a song. To me Sunday denotes a softer and smoother day, almost like a day of rest which it is. A comforting sound, a friendly sound that really wants you to stop rushing around and take the time to enjoy what is clearly around us.
So many times the blessings we have are overlooked and ignored because of busy schedules, life and job pressures both real and imagined, and manufactured crisis situations by ourselves or others. One of the first things you should do in the morning when you first wake up, is to look around inside and outside at the many blessings that you have and say aloud "Thank You".
Other days of the week have their own sounds and feel as well, but today for the sake of expedience, I have only included the weekend days. Why not conduct your own study of these days and notice the sound and feel that you personally get from each one. I think you'll find it to be an amusing and educational past time...and a great topic of conversation for when you are sharing a cup of coffee with friends.
Speaking of coffee and friends...let's go share a fresh cup, and maybe talk about the sound of Sunday!
