Happy Saturday







Happy Saturday

Saturday is a happy day…a day that families can be together...
To work, and to play, to go out for the day…and to simply enjoy the good weather

But first meet at the table in your pajamas, and robes, bare feet, bad breath, messy hair...
Read a Psalm for the day, then a Proverb, and pray, as mom makes breakfast with care

Make a list of the projects you’d all like to do, and add in some time for the leisure...
Soon the chores will be done, since you did them as one, and now you can take time for the pleasure

After a day like this, of hard work, and then play, you can come home for a nice family dinner...
Play some games at the table, do your best with each one, as you each strive to be the big winner!

Pop some popcorn, watch a movie, take your baths, go to bed…
early enough to get up for church the next day...
And just before bed, fold your hands, bow your head...giving thanks for a great Saturday

You’ll be blessed as you worship together as one, as a family that wants God’s very best...
Yes, if your Saturdays are good, ending your week as you should…then Sundays can be a day of rest…

Now doesn’t this sound good…are you treating Saturdays as you should? Or are you all running off in different directions?

A family should pray…and plan to make Saturday…a day to share lots of love and affection!

Happy Saturday!

Hi Linda -- We are going to do that today by having a 'pool party' with the 3-year-old.

She will be leaving us, probably on Monday. Her mom, our daughter, leaves Sunday for work Monday.

Dad and the girls will follow in about a week after visiting with the 'other woman' being the other grandmother.

Last Sunday wasn't a pool party,

Awesome advice for families and for everyone... plan a great day, get the work done, make time for fun and relaxing, and always remember to count your blessings! That bicycle brought back good memories of childhood long ago!

Grandma Becky said...

good advice. We are home today, for most of it. A bit of grocery shopping. Right now daughter and I watching Pioneer Woman Cooks...and we share in laughter and wanting to hop into the tv and eat her food even though we just had breakfast. A good thing at end of Sat. is prepare mind for church on Sund...read a piece of scripture. That works for me! Have a great day!

I agree awesome advise. Oregon is beautiful everywhere and I know I have taken it for granted at times. :-( Hope you had a great day with your fam.

When Words Escape said...

If I had a family, that's what I would hope to be doing. It's just me and my two cats -- they don't cooperate with list-making and planning. Though they do like to join me at (on!) the table (naughty kitties).

Happy Saturday!

Also, thank you so much for your sweet comments on my blog...they always brighten my day! I am horrible at responding, but I want you to know your visits mean a lot!
