Preparing for the Lord’s Day

     Long time readers know that our family spends a good deal of time on Saturday preparing for Sunday.  We prepare clothes for church, we pack play clothes for after church, we prepare all of the shared dishes we take with us for potluck, we make sure the house is in respectable order, we bake a coffee cake or muffins for Sunday morning breakfast, and we usually prepare a pot of soup to reheat for Sunday supper.  Our goal is to perform as many tasks as we can on Saturday in order to make Sunday not only a day of rest, but also to help us get out the door for church on time and with hearts prepared for worship, rather than for war.  You know what I’m talking about!
     Today a lot of that prep will fall on Dani’s shoulders.  As I type, I’m waiting for a call back from the pediatrics office with an appointment time for Aaron.  Lift him up in prayer if you think of it, as well as the doctor he will see later today.
     Back to the point.  Here’s a terrific link to an article about getting out the door on time on Sundays (be sure to watch the video).  After that, be sure to click here for a list of some practical things you can do today to be better prepared for worship tomorrow. 
    

Have a blessed Lord’s Day tomorrow!

  • I pray Aaron is doing better.  Hope you and your family are having a blessed Lord’s Day.

  • SATURDAYSaturday is a special day.

    It’s the day we get ready for Sunday:

    We clean the house, and we shop at the store,

    So we won’t have to work until Monday.

    We brush our clothes, and we shine our shoes,

    And we call it our get-the-work-done day.

    Then we trim our nails, and we shampoo our hair,

    So we can be ready for Sunday!
