Each day on Facebook for the month of January, I am naming a "goal" for 2015. I don't like using the word "resolution" but I guess they are...resolutions to improve myself.
Today's goal for the year?
To truly keep Sunday as a Day of Rest.
year in our Sunday School, we went through the Ten Commandments. Of
course, one of the commandments is to keep the Sabbath Day holy.
I have read that a hundred times. A thousand times.
But have I ever truly thought about what that meant?
I talked to some others in our class about what that means to them.
I have read opinions on it.
I have prayed about it.
And I still don't really know.
But I do know that it is a goal for me.
Even if I am not sure what it looks like.
yesterday (Saturday), instead of being the lazy bum I can tend to be, I
got up. I went to school for a bit. I ran to the grocery store. I
worked on lesson plans (a typical Sunday event). I did some
cleaning/organizing. I was pretty tired by the time I fell into bed
Today I have been to church. Read part of
a book I have wanted to read. Gone out to lunch with my crew. Enjoyed a
nap. Watched a movie with the little ones (half watched...it wasn't my
favorite movie). We typically have family game night but a couple
family members had places to be, so we went for the movie instead. And
now I am just chillaxin', preparing for the week with a little rest.
have not done any household chores (the dishes are stacking up in the
sink). I have a stack of report cards to tend to...they will wait for
tomorrow. And I haven't run errands.
And I have enjoyed every minute.
I am not sure what future "days of rest" will involve (other than hopefully hiking when the weather warms up a bit).
But I am going to spend the year trying to figure it out!
