A Sunday well spent brings a week of content.
Sunday. Yesterday was perfect.
Sunday's that are spent constructively really do make for organized and great weeks ahead.
Yesterday, we did the following:
Tea in bed. We woke up to the coldest day we have had this year and pouring rain. We all climbed into our bed to snuggle and cuddle with tea and rusks. For all four of us. There is no better way to spend the morning. Family time is everything.
Church. We went to our 9h15 church service. Unfortunately our little EN isn't a fan of being left in her baby church so we let her spend the hour with Nan & Bumpa. SJ had a fun filled hour with her kids church, eating treats, singing songs about Jesus and learning about Paul and how God changes hearts. We listened to an incredible sermon on faith and hope in our country, our lives and around the world. The Hillsong song, Cornerstone left me in tears. A very powerful service.
Rings. We collected my two eternity bands. My poor rings have been through a lot recently, and losing diamonds four times in the past few months. Last week they were reset and now they are sparkling and brand new. I felt lost and naked without these bands - beautiful reminders of the miracles that I gave birth to (MC bought me each band after each of our girls were born).
Lunch. We sat together as a family eating the most delicious pizza lunch. A special meal as a family of four, chatting about church, our lives and the week ahead. We love meal times with our girls - even with the chaos of glasses spilling, kids refusing their good, begging for ice cream, rolling dough and coloring pictures.
Grocery shopping. Meal planning and food shopping on a Sunday is my best. We can plan ahead, pack the fridge and have everything organized for a Monday morning. Much better than rushing around on a Monday morning...
Naps. Who doesn't love a Sunday afternoon nap in a warm bed with the rain pouring outside in the cold.
Dinner. Sunday grocery shopping allows us to get a head start on a hearty family dinner. In this chilly weather, tasty chicken soup warmed us all before climbing into beds - feeling content, prepared and loved for Monday morning.
How was your weekend?
