I love Sundays.  I know for some, Sundays can be tough, especially in the morning trying to get everyone out the door.  I remember mornings where we were running late and we'd be on edge and the slightest thing could set off an argument.  Satan likes to work that way.  Sundays are important days for the Christian, and I believe Satan works overtime on Sundays!  Since we've been in Australia I try hard to keep Sundays as peaceful as possible.

Sunday mornings I try to wake up early.  Our church doesn't start until 10am, but we leave a little after 9am to be there.  I like to have all of our clothing picked out the night before and ironed if necessary.  It also helps to get to bed early on Saturday night, it doesn't always happen, but it's a goal!   I wake up at 7am or earlier on a Sunday morning.  I try to have some quiet time to prepare my heart for the day, then put some food in the crockpot.  (I love coming home from church in the morning and having lunch made, it's easy to invite company over too!)  My goal is to be showered and dressed by 8:15, then wake up my family.  Lately I've been having hymns playing on my iPod dock, I don't know about the rest of my family, but it helps me prepare for the day.  Because we have a morning tea time between Sunday School and church, I don't stress about breakfast.  If we're all out the door by 9:10, I'm happy!

I hope your Sundays are a day spent in worship of our Creator.  My prayer is that we'll never become calloused to the Lord's Day.  What a privilege we have to go to church!

"I was glad when they said unto me, Let us go into the house of the LORD." 
Psalm 122:1

We love Sundays as well ~ although it often is rather a busy day. We do try & get a rest somewhere in though. I love the idea of preparing a meal in the slow cooker ahead of time ~ I'll have to give it a go sometime!
Have a wonderful week

I just had to laugh when I saw the people wearing tank tops! In our church we are wearing as many layers as we can right now because of the extreme cold... hovering around zero right now.

We love Sundays too! Great post and such a good reminder as to how important it is to keep our attitudes friendly and fresh on that day.... especially with our own families.
