Sunday’s Best

How do you spend your Sundays? For many people Sunday’s have different meanings. For some it’s a day of rest, other’s it’s a another day. Some people work on Sundays.

When I was a little girl for us Sunday’s meant family time, we would start it off by going to church then after service we spent the day as a family, We could not go and hang out with our friends because Sundays was family, mom would prepare a nice dinner and we girls would be playing in the family room or helping mom set the table.

The moment we say down at the table we gave God thanks for the day and then mom and dad would ask each of us girls what we learned in church today.

After dinner was over we would read or play games as a family, at first I never understood why we could not play with our friends but once mom and dad explained it to us, I saw the reason and understood. My parents wanted us kids to know the value in spending time with family,

In our culture today we have gotten away from the family values, we aren’t spending that quality time like we should. Life comes and goes but family is a value that none of us can let die. I thank my parents for the valuable lesson, and it’s that same lesson I passed on to my daughter.

      1. I thought when you said it sound similar to your childhood that it was great…when you think about it what kid you know who it’s some type of rebel?

  1. I passed on the same value to my son as well. Our culture is missing so much about learning from one another and about one another by not having such traditions. There is so much bonding that goes on at the family table. It saddens my heart that we don’t see families gathered each evening at the table together. Society has gotten to where we grab and go on to the next thing.

    I really appreciate your post. Thank you for sharing your thoughts. I thought you make enjoy this talk by Lenord Sweet. It is called “Bring Back the Table.” Set aside time to watch because it is about an half hour long but worth the listen.

    Blessings to you and your writing.

    1. Thank you April. I’m glad to hear you did the same with your son. And I will go and listen to the link you added. Have a blessed evening.
