The 100 Day Project: Day 34 Of Writing
Everyday is a brand new day, everyday is a journey.
Lord, be Thou near and cheer my lonely way;
With Thy sweet peace my aching bosom fill;
Scatter my cares and fears; my griefs allay,
And be it mine each day
To love and please Thee still.
There was a time a few years back, where we kept the Sabbath Day separate from the rest of the week. On that day, we did no laborious work of any kind. There was Church in the morning and the rest of the day was spent at home relaxing with the family. We made it a point of being at home with our loved ones, sitting down to a meal at the table and conversing with one another. That day usually felt quicker than any other during the week. Sunday would fly by in a heartbeat.
Somewhere along the way in the past year or so, things changed a bit. It always starts slowly, doesn't it? You're just going to pop into the store for some groceries. You didn't have time during the week and on your way home from Church, you can drop in. So convenient! The next thing you know, you are doing grocery shopping every Sunday after Church. That's how it happens.
Well, we really need to get back to keeping the Sabbath as a family day only. You see, lately I have been feeling very fatigued. In fact, I find myself often having these kind of days in need of rest. Since we have been off our regular routine, it seems common sense that might be the reason why. It always seems so easy to slip away, but it is so costly in the end. My relationship with my children is just too important to lose.
So what are you doing this Sunday? Or any Sunday? How do you spend it? Maybe we need to get back to where we were and what obviously worked really well for us. I hope all of you can join us in following the Sabbath as a family day.
Have a blessed day everyone.
