a day to rest

 
necklace: Vera Wang for Kohls, socks: Kenneth Cole {stolen from Jon}, all the rest: Target
Yesterday, we heard such an inspirational sermon at church about the Sabbath day.  We were reminded that the Sabbath, simply put, is a day set aside for rest.  A day to rest, to celebrate life, to focus on love, family & God.  a day to nourish the soul.

Both Jon and I have chosen career paths that don't always allow us a weekend.  We used to try to make Sundays our 'family day', but lately, with me being at the hospital every third weekend and Jon's study/test schedule, they've fallen to the wayside.  But we now have a new resolve to spend one day a week, free from distractions {i.e. computers, phones, tv, etc.}, as a family.  Whether that day is a Sunday or not doesn't really matter.  The important thing is just that we do it;  that we take the time just to be, to relax together, & to count our blessings.

  3. Awww lovely thoughts on the meaning of weekends. I agree that it doesn't have to be on Sat + Sun...as long as you get some time to yourselves to relax and regroup after a workweek! Don't want to get too runned down :P BTW, your dog is pulling at my heart strings - suuuper adorable!
