I loved my day off.
First half of the day was quiet...at home reading and working on a couple of things in preparation for the work week - but at a slow easy pace. A pace that achieved what needed to be done without any stress or hurry. With puppy asleep in the sun and hubby nearby also catching up on his computer. No music, no TV just silent sun beams through windows and an occasionally faint typing sound.
Then the second half of our day - I drove my parents to Columbus to see my sister and brother-in-law's amazing new church www.northwestchapel.org and to celebrate my sisters birthday!
We walked through their new ministry and celebrated how God miraculously moved them there! It is SO obvious it's right where they belong. And then we laughed and talked over food and gifts.
The simple joy of being together as a family is something I will never take for granted, and it is my favorite way to spend a day off.
Days off should all be just like today was (:
