There’s something about Sunday…
First of all, let me say this… For the majority of the week, we go through our routine just like anyone else. This time of year for us, that means: morning milking, routine morning chores, lunch, a little free time in the afternoon…maybe to run errands, clip cows, do winter maintenance, or even read a book J …evening milking, supper, homework and bedtime.
However, throughout our week, instead of rubbing shoulders with lots of people, we relate mostly with each other. Yes, we see the milk man, the breeder, the feed salesman, a neighbor or two, and maybe (but hopefully not!) the vet for a few minutes, but it can get a little lonely by times. Never boring, but sometimes lonely! The size of our farm doesn’t warrant hired help, so we don’t have days off or get away at all as a family right now either…so…when Sunday rolls around, we are ready!
We choose to spend time worshipping with our Church family each week, and do only the necessary chores on Sunday. We hurry through the morning work and head for Church, knowing that we will be blessed in one way or another. Perhaps it will be an especially meaningful sermon; perhaps it will be a conversation and laughter with a friend; perhaps it will be watching young people in the congregation being given the chance to share their gifts…or a combination of things. Today was no exception!
We shared an impromptu afternoon with friends...fabulous food, laughter, a walk, watching the kids enjoy themselves and warm sunshine! Just what we needed to be refreshed!
It’s evening now. The barn work is finished, and we have a little time to relax before bedtime. We’ve been blessed, and have hopefully been able to bless others in some way today!
Thank you friends, for a day of refreshment!
