All On a Golden Afternoon

Do you ever feel like Alice in Wonderland enjoying a wonderful day…all on a golden afternoon? Sunday is our “day of rest,” and it starts with sunshine flooding through our curtains to wake us up for church! Andy’s message was excellent, as per usual. As Alan says, “I like Andy’s messages. He teaches the Scripture and dispels a lot of error.” Amen. 🙂I guess every family is different in how they interpret the idea of rest, but for us, it often includes a leisurely boat ride and a long, relaxing swim in the lake or pool Whatever else…it almost ALWAYS includes a nap!And, here I pause to point out that Davy is our Sun Kat King! Note how he religiously seeks out the sunny spot for napping, no matter how hot the day may be!After a good, long nap, we have “tea time” and then spend time reading, playing music, or other relaxing enterprises. If we’re lucky, we get to spend some time getting caught up with our Michigan-based kids (like Daniel and Brianna, who were home this weekend for a wedding), and we often get to skype with some of our out-of-state kids and grand kids, too!By the time sun sets, we are often feeling very rested and ready to face the new week!Thank you, Lord, for giving us a day of rest!

“From the rising of the sun unto the going down of the same the LORD’s name is to be praised” (Psalm 113:3).

“Thus saith the LORD, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls.” (Jeremiah 6:16)

  1. Such lovely pictures. I especially loved the first one of the sun coming in the window. You sure do have a gorgeous little corner of the earth to call home!

  2. I thank the Lord every morning for the joy of our life, especially knowing how horribly difficult it is for so many. May Jesus come back and rescue all the earth!
