gratitude:: day 21 of 30


sunday is my favorite day of the week. there is a feeling to sunday that is not like the feeling of any other day.

a quiet serenity. a peace - even when i have many things to do. the pace is slower. and i like it.

where saturday can be demanding, sunday has a hush and reverence.

i'm grateful for the sundays in my life - it helps me remember that not everything has to be done now, now, now. for sunday tells me, slow, soon, and enjoy.

  2. Thanks for your comment on my blog and for following me so faithfully, I am so thankful ;-) It's going to be a hard Christmas but we'll take it one day at a time.
    I love this reflection on Sunday...everything is closed in Norway on Sundays...so you are forced into relaxation whether you want it or not...it's good usually but sometimes I miss open stores on Sunday..

  3. Char, I am glad you can relax on your Sundays. Today I am still in my bathrobe and I am going to curl up and watch movies. THATS how relaxed I am today. I have a million in one things to do, and my feeling is not today. Have a great one. take care.

  6. I totally agree....slow..slow....with nothing demanding or expected. Truly a day of rest the way it was intended.
    Blessings to you on this Sunday.

  7. The photo is a wonderful representation of the thoughts expressed in your post. I am visualizing a slow unfurling of the tensions and business of the week...a quite time for rebirth and renewal.

  8. When I was a kid, I hated, HATED Sundays. We went to this loud, very "energetic" church that scared the bejesus out of me. Dreaded Sundays. Now they're just slow lazy days. And I don't go to church either.

  9. "I'm thankful for the Sundays in my life." What a nice sentiment, one I don't think I've ever heard before. I'll second your sentiment.

  13. I'm not always good about taking things slow on Sundays. But you're right, that's the way it should be.

  14. Do you remember Sundays of long ago? Most of the shops were closed, and the morning was spent getting ready for and going to church.
    Although I don't do that anymore, Sunday is still rather revered. It's the end of the week, but also the beginning. I like it quiet.

  19. ...I was going to comment on exactly what Kate had to say...remember when all the stores were closed on Sundays?...You are probably too young...That truely made it a guiet day of family and rest whether or not church was included. I fondly remember it as being a day of staying in and reading the Sunday paper with my father making bacon and fried eggs and toast...then a large family meal in the early afternoon...and visits with relatives...and board games...and family TV nights with the Wonderful world of Disney...
