R and R Sunday/The Sundays of Lent are celebration days!
When you're stressed float awhile
Lesson from the Ark
A promise is one of those things we say all the time when we make an agreement. If it is REALLY serious, we might even pinky promise, shaking with our pinkies as a way to seal the deal and add a little oomph to the promise made
More times than not, we probably break those promises. Life gets busy, we get distracted, and we forget promises that we have made, even the pinky ones.
During Lent we make promises to give up things that matter to us to show our earnest willingness to make more room for God in our lives.
But on Sundays, the Lords day, we are allowed to have all those things we gave up for one day a week during Lent.
It's true that what we can have becomes all the more precious to us. If I can't have a piece of cake, I find myself wanting one all the more. So on Sundays I can have my piece of cake and eat it too!
Another popular promise in Lent is to do more for others and sometimes after a week of doing, Lent or otherwise, we need a break and just Float awhile.
Sundays are a day FLOAT YOUR BOAT and rest. This means doing whatever it takes to soothe your soul or whatever works best.
My list of things to give up are found on the side bar of my blog. I really don't think it will make this Sunday or any day, any time of year better if I break those promises. I'm still going to float today, and make it a soothing one, but I'll keep my promises too.
In the long run some promises are made not to be broken.
I hope you have a wonderful day of rest and relaxation, renewal and refreshment for the coming week ahead.
You all remain in my thoughts and prayers as always.
