A Sunday well spent means a week of content!
My day of rest has been and always will be on Sunday. It’s a habit acquired from my maternal grand mother. The only work allowed at all on Sunday was fixing dinner. Sunday was a day set aside for worship and relaxation. Very often family would visit on Sunday and so the day was really a restful and fulfilling kind of day. I remember my grandfather sitting in his rocker on the porch and my sisters and I in the porch swing, laughing.
It’s great to start off a new week refreshed and renewed. There are many people that have to work on Sundays so their day off might be a Monday or Tuesday. I don’t think that matters much as long as one of the day’s off is a day of relaxation and rest.
We all need the time off in order to be the best we can be.
Weekends don't count unless you spend them doing something completely pointless.
One of my Sunday rituals used to be reading the Sunday paper. It was filled with all sorts of things besides the local, state and world news. Recipes and ads for sales gave me plenty of fodder for the coming week. The travel pages plus the Sunday comics triggered lots of smiles. I’ve let this joy slip by but I intend to remedy that situation.
Another ritual that I still keep is going to church Sunday morning. As my grandmother before me, there is rarely a Sunday that I miss and I’m usually there early which another practice she kept.
Sunday dinners always give cause for a smile too. And even though it’s a rare day that everyone can be together, I love it when my family can get together to enjoy some quality time together. They say that the good old days will never come back, but what we do in the days to come can depend on what we do today.
Rest and be thankful, it’s Sunday!
Sunday clears away the rust of the whole week.
