As I understand it, Sunday is supposed to be a 'day of rest'.
God told Moses way-back-when that the people shouldn't do any work on the seventh day.
And He asks us to faithfully attend church services. I can honestly say that most times I am glad when it is time to "go into the house of the Lord"..
My problem seems to be that Sundays often leave my house a mess and me feeling behind before the week has even gotten started.
I usually pick out everyone's clothes on Saturday night, which helps us get out the door to church relatively stress-free and (usually) on time. Breakfast dishes may or may not get done.
And then there is lunch and the afternoon, during which we like to watch Nascar races or spend time on the computer.
Pretty soon it's time to gather everyone up and back to church for evening services.
After that we eat again and start getting everyone ready for bed.
And then I look around at a big mess and a stack of to-dos that will be waiting for me Monday morning.
It seems an afternoon of 'rest' leaves me feeling more lazy and behind than rested!
Which has me wondering... how do you handle Sundays in your home?
