Sabbath Rest

O day of rest and gladness, O day of joy and light,
O balm of care and sadness, Most beautiful, most bright...
Christopher Wadsworth

With morning worship and lunch behind us the boys and I rode our bikes. {What fun we'll have when Sister is big enough to ride in the baby seat and we can all go together!} To cool off {we're still having highs in the upper nineties, it's an endless summer} the men watched Wipeout which utterly fascinated the boys. I settled down to this business of learning to crochet... an endeavor that is completely motivated by the shoes, I might add. Baby Sister played with the yarn like a kitten. It was restful.

Jesus said to them,
"The Sabbath was made for man,
and not man for the Sabbath."
Mark 2:27
