A day of rest

Sundays.

Sundays are wonderful. I will be forever grateful that God instituted a day of rest.

Not that they feel as restful as I would hope.

There's a certain kind of stress that I feel on Sundays that I don't often feel throughout the rest of my life. Getting ready for church is stressful.

There are few places in my family's life that we have to be somewhere at a certain time. So getting everyone ready and out the door so we can get to church on time is a struggle that we are not really used to...even though we go through it most every week of every year.

Despite that, I still love Sundays. I love going to church. I love fellowshipping with people in the ward. I love singing together. I love the sacrament! I love teaching my boys about the sacrament. I love Sunday dinners. I love Sunday evenings, especially when we have someone over or are visiting family or friends. I love that Sundays can recharge me for the rest of the week.

Sundays are special. I wonder why so many people are so quick to give up their Sundays to normal activities of the week. This day of rest is a gift and you won't find me returning it any time soon:)

What about you? Do you think Sundays are restful?

On teaching our kids about the sacrament: I took the Deacons into Jeffrey's primary class a couple weeks ago to teach the little kids about the sacrament. They asked the little kids questions about what the sacrament represents and Jeffrey answered all the questions beautifully. It was a proud parent moment.
