Church Skippers

Today our family skipped church. We don't do it very often (I can probably count on one hand the times we've intentionally missed) but I gotta tell you it was really nice. John has been working quite a bit lately. Even when he's home, he's working. So, it really was a no-brainer to stay home today. We needed the family time and we needed the rest. Restful it was. We all slept in, made a big breakfast, read the newspaper--on Sunday morning rather than late Sunday night!, played outside in the beautiful weather, made a cake, exercised, played Connect Four and cards, made dinner, and watched Funniest Videos together--complete with popcorn. It was the best day we've had in the longest time. The pace was leisurely and restful. A true Sabbath.
