Favorite Day Of The Week
Today has been a pretty good day. I took the 2 little ones to Sunday school and church this morning and I went to evening services by myself. I really look forward to Sundays now. They are my favorite day of the week. However there are a few things about Sundays that I could live without. It is the chaos before church when I want to go and others in the home refuse to go and they seem to try everything they can to make it more difficult. I don't even think it is on purpose. I won't give in and stay home so there is a weekly struggle. It is difficult not to get resentful. All I can do is pray that things will get better and someday we may all be sitting in the pew together. Until then I will keep going and taking my boys every week. Part of the sermon today was about teaching our children about God just like we teach them to throw a ball and play catch and all the things we teach our kids. I am trying to teach Patrick and Nathan by taking them to Sunday school an reading stories to them. Patrick told me last night that we were going to have to read 3 stories because we had skipped 2 nights. He is keeping track and keeping me accountable. He is a pretty smart kid for 7 years old. The things he prays for just crack me up sometimes. I am sure we have covered all of the cartoon characters ever invented, but I let him pray for whatever he wants. Well it is time for baths, stories and bedtime prayers. Hope your Sunday was pretty good too.
