Good morning ___school name____.

Wherever you are in the building, please stand up for Jesus and join me in the sign of our faith. In the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Amen

I heard on the radio this morning that according to scientologists, today is called,

“BLUE MONDAY”. According to these people, today is the most depressing day of the entire year.

I can definitely think of a few good reasons why some people might find today very depressing:

We haven’t been able to hug our friends and families for such a long time. I miss getting a hug from my friends. Hugs feel so good and make us feel loved. Another reason you might find it depressing is that the weather has been absolutely freezing cold which takes away the fun of going outside to enjoy the snow, our toboggans and sleds, and going for a nice walk.

I know all of us could think of many, many reasons why you could say today could be the most depressing day of the year.

But how about focusing on all the good things in your life. We are so fortunate to be able to go to school when it’s safe. Not all children in the world have a chance to go to school.

The weather is brutally cold, but we are safe in our homes while some people do not have a home and are living on the streets.

We are healthy today while many people are at home sick and suffering with all kinds of illnesses so we need to be grateful for our good health.

As Christians, we know there really isn’t anything that will happen today that we can’t get through with God on our side!

Name of School: Today is a gift from God and we must appreciate this gift. Tell your loved ones you love them – people can never have too much of those wonderful words!

Help us to make the best of today Lord! May we be keep looking for the positives in our lives and be thankful for the many blessings we have been given!

In the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Amen
