Sunday Afternoons

I love the Sabbath day.  I love everything about it.  It is the only day of the week that I don't do laundry, run errands, or rush around to sporting events.  It is the only day of the week that Kurt doesn't work and that we spend the entire day together as a family.  We worship together, we play games together, we go on walks, we read and write in journals, and we have quiet time.

Yesterday Kurt had quiet resting time with Faye.  When dinner was ready I looked everywhere and couldn't find the two of them.  Then one of the children told me they saw him in the back yard.  This is how I found them.  I love this time of year; the air is a little cooler and it feels wonderful to be outside.  I'm so glad my little one and her dad could have a sunday afternoon nap together outside.
These are life's little pleasures, right?  And they are all possible on sunday afternoons.
