NO! It's Beautiful Monday!
A popular scripture heard often or seen written in greeting cards is Numbers 6:24-26:
The Lord bless you and keep you. The Lord make His face to shine upon you and be gracious unto you. The Lord lift up His countenance upon you, and give you peace.
I'd say that's a pretty cool all-encompassing blessing spoken to the children of Israel. But too often this scripture has just become one of those that has been repeated so much that the meaning has been lost. (Does, 'The Lord is My Shepherd, or The Lord's Prayer ring a bell?!)
I've broken down some of the words of these verses so that the next time we hear this verse, it won't just be another cliche' verse, but words we can take to heart and apply to our own walk with the Lord.
The Lord bless and preserve, protect and guard you. The Lord make his Presence, before and behind to be illuminated or kindled upon you and show favour and consideration to you. The Lord lift up (to bear, carry, support, sustain, endure) his presence, before and behind you and give you peace.
What an awesome verse to take into our day.

God bless your day!
It's all BEAUTIFUL MONDAY Good!
