So many of us, myself included, use that day for cramming in all of the chores that didn't get done all week- right after church... I'm not judging or condemning. Life is busy. I get it. I just wish it weren't so.
This is not a shameless plug for you to come to my art retreat and get your much deserved rest (ok, maybe a smidgen) - but more of a let me try to understand the several conversations I had over the last several days; the ones with people who truly want to attend the art retreat, but just don't have a whole weekend to devote to it. Could we please just come on Sunday? Hmm.. setting aside the one day to do something special and rejuvenating, something fun and uplifting and dare I say restful? If one day is what you have; if you are willing to put your to-dos over to Saturday- then by all means, come and share your sabbath with us. I am putting the one day- Sunday option in the shopping cart, and encourage you to jump in and grab a spot before they're full.
Regardless of how you spend your October 26th- my hope is that you truly take a day each week- even half a day and kick your feet up... do something special. Rest. And if you see me doing a mad dash through the grocery store on Sunday, can you just give me a glare... or an understanding smile.... grace. I'll try to do the same.
Blessings on your week!
