From the wires;
"Researchers in England, citing unpaid holiday bills, rotten weather and people's realization that they likely won't live up to their New Year's resolutions, say Jan. 22 is the unhappiest day of 2007.Cliff Arnall, a Cardiff University psychologist, devised the depressing formula.His equation takes into account six factors: weather, debt, time since Christmas, time since failing our New Year’s resolutions, low motivational levels and feeling a need to take action.
Taken together, they calculate to equal "Blue Monday."

So there you have it, today is officially to be a sad day for you. The frightening thing is that there will be people who actually will believe this. There will be people using this as a reason and rationalization for a host of behaviors. It is reports and studies like this that make you glad you are a follower of Christ. We have the Word of God that instructs us that Gods mercies are new everyday, regardless of the current studies. Things like this also display the marked contrast between the life of faith and the life apart from it. Ours is a faith that goes beyond sight, circumstance and even things like "Blue Monday". So for those in Christ today, have a great day! And for those apart from Christ, consider today calling upon Him as the forgiver of your sins and the owner of your life. That will definitely turn this day around for you.

blog you later,
