A sweet friend of mine spurred me on the last chapter of 7 and I am SO glad she did...
"Such is the ridiculous American life. Everyone of my friends has a similar story. None of us are happy about it, yet we keep filling up our calendars. Yes, I'm in; we'll sign up; I'll do it. We race from one activity to another, teaching our children to max out and stress out. Nice legacy.
This biblical concept of rest is whispering to me, "You're ignoring me." And I am. Not only do I not take God's command seriously, but I act like it's not even in the Bible. Ah, Sabbath. How cute and archaic. It's adorable how the Hebrews obeyed that. Good for them."
"You have six days each week for your ordinary work, but the seventh day is a Sabbath day of complete rest, an official day for holy assembly. It is the LORD's Sabbath day, and it must be observed wherever you live.
This is just the tip of her iceburg in this chapter and all I am sharing today because I am taking this part to heart.
Today we worshiped, ate as a family, and resting the day away.
In the past, I have used Sunday to catch up on house chores, edit photos and blog, spend extra time on my computer, etc. and there is nothing wrong with all that.
Today I am choosing Sweet Sunday~
a day to rest, relax, and refocus my mind on God's gift...
a day of rest.
Hoping that in the future all these words won't be necessary and I will just throw up a few photos if even that.
Blessings to you all and choose rest~ it's a gift!
