My imperfect day. I woke this morning hoping there would still be snow then i could put down the guilt of not going to church today. I have been struggling for months with my health, physically, mentally and emotionally and i just need a day when i dont have to do anything. Maybe i’m not quite sick enough to stay in bed but that’s where i want to stay.
The long dark days of winter should be a blessing. One where we can take ourselves away from the hussle and bustle of the world. Eat thick stews and fattening puddings, play games, talk, read all those books we havent had time for through the year. But there never seems to be enough time to stop and do nothing and when we do stop we feel quilty. No guilt today.
Today is the Sabbath of the Lord. The Sabbath is a day of rest. In six days God made heaven and earth and everything in them and on the seventh day He rested from all His labours, inviting us to do the same. Six days to work in and the seventh for rest. So today God gives you a day-off, so what are you going to do with it?
