One of the administrators of the school district where I was recently employed is famous for saying, “Every day is a holiday” when he extends a greeting. The first time I met him he said this, and I thought, “Wow, sheer optimism.” Recently, at a back-to-school rally for teachers, he greeted the staff with “Every day is a holiday, and every meal is a feast.” That was a new twist, I thought. Then, I began to ponder a spiritual application to this saying.
I don’t know about you, but for me when it is a holiday, I get super excited about having a day off from work, especially when the holiday falls on a Monday. It gives me a break in my hectic routine and extra time to complete things I need to get done on the weekend. I sleep better just knowing I have the next day off.
