A day of rest.
This afternoon we’ll be going to my parents. We’ll be picking apples and tomatoes and wandering around my parents yard. Going through my dad’s grapes and hoping to pick one that’s ripe and not too sour. No huge plans. Just family. Working together.
And laughing together.
Take those moments, those beautiful moments of family time and run with them. When I look at the years of marriage that I’ve been blessed to have I realize just how important family is to us. Family wins. That’s a family motto we have — family first. Always.
And that means today, I’ll be resting. Enjoying helping my mother in the kitchen, and walking the backyard with my dad, and playing cards with my siblings, and playing the piano with my sister, and watching my children play in the yard and sit at the table of my childhood.
Enjoying the simple and beautiful and everyday moments in this life that the Lord has blessed me with. So grateful for Sunday. And family.
Enjoy your Sunday. And try to rest.
