I was reading this post from The Polished Pickle the other day, and I was so impressed and proud of Megan and her family's desire to not shop for food on a Sunday. It just struck a chord in me.
And I realized...how much I use Sunday as an "Extra Saturday." After church...I grocery shop. I clean. I catch up on laundry. And by around 8pm, I am in the middle of a full-on-panic attack as I can feel the last few minutes of my weekend slipping away. It is not pretty.
And it is not Holy. Quite the opposite, actually.
So, last Sunday, I was bound & determined to Keep it Holy. We grocery shopped on Friday night after a Mexican Food Feast. Tim noted that it is such a good idea to go shopping on a full stomach. I think it is the FIRST time I have ever shopped with him that HE hasn't added about 10 extra things to the cart.
I'm really good about not doing that, you guys. Seriously. There's a trophy on the mantle.
So. There you have it. I did finish up some extra lesson plans and switched one load of laundry (before church).
But that's it. Truth be told, the house is kind of a wreck. Truth be told, the house is often a wreck. There's a bike in our living room, for Pete's Sake. More on that later.
It just... is what it is, I guess. But I didn't touch any of it, and I trust in The Lord to Bless it.
If you haven't tried REALLY resting on The Sabbath, you should. I'm hoping it's a habit that sticks.
In other news. Downton Abbey? I can't stop.
Love & Edith is kind of a jerk,
