I have been thinking about having a sabbath day lately. There really isn't one currently, if I am honest. I know there are differing opinions on which actual day is the sabbath but to me this isn't all that important. Simply keeping a sabbath and having a day set aside for rest from the busyness of life is important. I came across this post at Preschoolers and Peace which further fueled my thoughts.
I was wondering if anyone else keeps a sabbath day? If so, how did you come to that place and what does that day look like. I am not looking for the "right" way, just interested in learning from others and growing in my understanding. I am open to everyones thoughts as long as we are nice :o)
My husband and I have recently talked about making sure we have no unnecessary work on Sunday after church. I have typically planned school for the week on Sunday afternoon but now am working it into my week. Another goal at this point is to make sure all the laundry is done and away by Saturdays end. We are going to pre-pack for church on Sunday mornings and have any meal stuff ready to go. I have a feeling this habit is going to take me awhile to change. We have no desire to make this a law and become legalistic. The heart is to rest and in a way refocus on what is priority...family and the Lord.
