Actually - Sunday still is a family day - its a RECHARGE and REJUVENATE DAY. I see a lot of families out doing things in groups - soccer games, shopping trips, concerts, plays, field trips, etc. Did you ever notice family reunions meet on Sundays in the Summer? Sunday around my area seems to be the day that people schedule activites - its not on Saturdays.
Someday I hope my on-the-side endeavor becomes full-time, like your current business` are - in the meantime, as am in between occpations (unemployed) I notice a lot about my self-employed friends. They all LOVE what they do! Would not change a thing - however, they tell me that God gave them their skills and abilities, they are the managers (of what GOD provided) their businesses, BUT - they all say they GOD comes first -then their families, then their business` and community volunteerism - so they make a point to weekly attend their respective churches to tithe a portion of their gross income. They pick the services that are easiest for their families and their business schedule. They also tell me - that when they give back to GOD - business seems to be better with less surprises. I guess what I am saying here, is they purposely set a weekly appointment to spend time at their local church services.
Personnaly it is my goal is to keep the MAIN thing, the MAIN thing. The MAIN thing is GOD in my life (and fellowship with others); I attended church services this morning. This may sound odd, but my friends and I even attend different when we are out of town.
Your parents would take you to Sunday school and they wouldn`t attend church? LOL! Wow!
My parents used to drag us off to church every Sunday morning. It would only take a few minutes before my dad would start nodding off. My brother and I used to immitate him and we would always get busted when we tried to supress a laugh.
I agree with Christina - if only Sunday morning were simpler ... I suppose they can be if you make them. I have 3 kids, so they`re constantly in need of some sort of stimulation, so naps are out of the question!
