A Blessed Lord's Day

                             Sunday's Colors by Carl Valente, from

A verse that motivates, whereever you are and  in whatever circumstances you live:

Colossians 3:23  "And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men; for ye serve The Lord God."

I am sure all ladies long for the ideal house, or look at show homes trying to view a more efficient kitchen.  Everyone who lives in an older home sees repairs and paint jobs that are needed.  Maybe you cant afford an Improvement or are getting too old to paint it yourself.  This verse has always been a motivation to do whatever you can find to do.  If you are home teaching your children, this is a great lesson on how to view the smallest of tasks, and how even the least important work can be done greatly.

In this life, each day is the Lord's Day and should be approached with His teachings in mind.  The first day of the week is when the disciples met for worship and communion, the Memorial,  and I am happy it is set aside so that we can stop for a time, leave our responsibilities, and meet with the saints.

Pages from a favorite book of Victorian Celebrations.

A few church bulletin selections:

If care is too small to be made into a prayer, it is too small to be made into a burden.

One minute of keeping your mouth shut is worth an hour of explanation.

Make sure that the thing you are living for is worth dying for.

No matter where you live or how much money you have, you can always find ways to make things homey, a soft chair, something that smells nice and tastes wonderful. Just do the best you can with what is available.

I also like to set all work aside for the Sabbath rest. I don't know how we could get through the rest of the week without it and I know that it is a witness to the rest of the world of our Christianity.

The picture that you posted just beckons you to set on that porch with a cool glass of lemonade and just rock.
