Wouldn't it be nice to have a quiet day? A day when we pretend there is no television, very little electricity, and no cars? I know that is not entirely practical, but maybe we can pretend for a few hours.
It would be nice to have a day of puttering around the property, working outdoors to make the grounds look nice, and to slowly tidy up the house. Maybe singing a few hymns while we work?
The day could start with Bible study and prayer. Then a little bit of housework. Perhaps the children are all still sleeping while we do these few things. We can be dressed and ready for the day with a cheerful smile, as if we have all the time in the world today!
We can bake a special treat for the family, or just serve something special to surprise them for a mid-morning break.
Then perhaps we will go outside with them, and not say, "I am too busy." We can act like we are "retired" and have much leisure to just focus on family.
Will nothing distract us today? How sweet would that be?
