Hard Headed Sabbath

Romans 15:4
For everything that was written in the past was written to teach us....


SO WHY did I think it was a good idea to do something other than rest on Sunday? But we needed groceries. I took Lydia to Dollar Tree as a little bonus in our shopping experience. Got home to the mess of lunch aftermath and groceries to be put away. I had missed those couple of precious hours when Blake naps and I enter a near vegetative state reserved for Sundays. God knows I needed that rest.

I had made it a habit of not doing much on Sunday because in doing so, I was making someone else work. The servers and cooks in restraunts, the store employees, even the gas station attendant. But yesterday, this committement was reaffirmed! So next Sunday, I plan to make it my Sabbath. If you need me then, I will be found at home!

We love and need quiet relaxing Sundays also. It takes effort for us to really guard that time along with the mindset that it is our Sabbath.

I like to rest on Sundays.....and mostly get to....except when we work here at camp. When we can't we try to relax on Mondays as a family. Of course in the summer.....relaxation is rare, but there is nothing like a Sunday nap time :) I grew up in a home that did not do anything unless it was a bike ride as a family or family picnic on Sundays. I love those memories :)
