Sabbath Rest

I planned a crockpot meal for tomorrow so we can enjoy a Sunday off. A Sabbath rest.

Abba worked 6 days & on the 7th, He rested. I see wisdom there... I get it in here {pointing at my heart} but just can't always get it into here {pointing at my head}! It's hard to get all the work needed in a household of 8 accomplished where I won't be starting Monday at such a deficit it's not worth trying...

So back to the crockpot. I planned a crock pot meal (Asparagus Strata) as a step in the right direction. That's a little less work and hopefully a little more time to share a laugh, a hug, a game with the ones I love most.

What do you do to allow time for special memories? Do you sing, study the Word, nap? What sets the Lord's day apart for you?

  1. The kids are memorizing Exodus 20 right now and we are on the fourth commandment. Was just thinking about more ways to make Sunday a day of rest. We don't nap anymore now that the service times are different and the kids just go to bed right at 7pm. We usually *try* to have all cooking/baking and ironing done on Saturday night, still trying to get that down 100%. When we get home on Sunday afternoons the children have been having some trumpet time individually with their daddy and after we have some light dinner and maybe some coloring time etc we have been having a nice long devotion where we have been reading the scripture and then practices the verses they are a memorizing and whatever hymn we are memorizing at the time. :)

    How did the asparagus strata turn out? It sounds yummy!


Thanks for dropping a note!
