my day off

I fell back to sleep today and slept until almost 10:00 a.m.!  Good grief - half the day almost gone!  Oh well it's My Day Off! Woo Hoo!

After all that sleep I swear I hit the ground running full blast - within an hour I had all my winter clothes transferred to an upstairs closet  and another closet organized and laundry in.

Soon after that we were on our way to meet up with family to talk, eat, move in more boxes, watched our son's music video, made my favorite cookies - the Chinese cookies they used to make at Gene's bakery and sat down to watch The Voice.

Looking back I have to ask - was their eternal significance anywhere in my day?

Yes, yes, yes!  More than some of my 'church' workdays!

Mark 6:31   And He Said to Them, "Come away by yourselves to a lonely place and rest a while."  For there were many people coming and going, and they did not even have time to eat.

God created rest...that seventh day he spoke of it.

Organized closets and my home.
I Corinthians 14:40  But everything should be done in a fitting and orderly way.

Not trying to take scripture out of context - but the Bible is never random or unorganized - always purposeful and heading somewhere specific...organized.

Spent the day with my hubby and extended family!

Genesis 2:24   Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and they shall become one flesh.

Psalm 127:3-5   Children are a gift from the Lord; they are a reward from him. Children born to a young man are like arrows in a warrior's hands. How joyful is the man whose quiver is full of them! He will not be put to shame when he confronts his accusers at the city gates.

I am truly, truly blessed!  Even the most simple day is His!!
