Sundays ~ day of rest

Rest can mean so many different things to so many different people.   Thankful to be in an age of grace where there were not all the added rules and regulations that the Pharisees put on Sundays.  Some folks have to work on Sundays and I am thankful for those doctors & nurses on call, the police officers and fire and rescue folks giving up their Sundays.  I think almost all other business would be just fine closed down for the day.

Anyway, enough of the soap box.  We try to hang out as a family Sunday afternoons.  Sometimes it's nap time, sometimes it is something fun or a few easy chores to help us get caught up.  Today was a round up of the leaves out front.  Got most of them blown into a big pile and one kid came to help me bag.  It was nice to have his company and didn't mind the occasional jumping into the leaf pile.  Wasn't in a great hurry and it was something fun for him to do.  Possibly brought joy for the moment.  We reminisced that the size of the pile wasn't the greatest for an 11 yo, would have been better about 10 years ago.  Time has flown by!

Today, although no new photos to post, there's plenty to be thankful for:

  • a quiet house
  • blankets
  • time to study
  • time to read
  • getting ahead on chores
