Resting on the Lord's Day

Yesterday after church our family went on a picnic. We knew that a picnic on Memorial Day wouldn't be happening as my husband has to work today, so we took advantage of the first nice day in a while, and met family at a local park. It was so nice to relax, feel the breeze, and just take a deep breath and slow down.

Life has a way of becoming hectic, crazy, and tension filled. Every day life brings lots of work to do, daily problems to solve, and a laundry pile that never ends. :)

I'm always grateful for Sundays, a day where we are actually told to stop working, and to rest and worship the Lord. God planned every detail of our life so perfect, including a day of rest!

Our family -May 2011.

Best friends and brothers - my two oldest!

Carrianna - my daughter in who I can relate to so easily.
She is very much like I was as a child!

You have such a beautiful family!
And I LOVE Carrianna pantaloons! They are sooo darling! They put me in mind of the sweet little girls in the Jane Erye movie. If you made them yourself where did get the pattern?

I have told my husband many times that we are commanded to rest on the Lord's day, but he says it is not work if you enjoy doing it. However, you are right the Lord knew what He was doing. After my day of rest I am renewed for the next week, what a difference.

My Mother in Law made them for Carrianna, and I'm not sure what pattern she used! I really think the lace makes a big difference in the appearance. :)

What a beautiful family! I love that we too have purposed to set aside Sundays as a day of rest for our family. It has not always been that way, and I did not always look forward to Sundays (as I should have). I now look forward to Sundays!

Hello everyone ♥
If I'm not mistaken, isn't the Lord's Sabbath on Saturday? I've done research (because I was NOT brought up to honor His Sabbath) and have learned that it's actually Saturday, not Sunday as I was told. What are your thoughts?
