A nap (If both kids are napping at the same time)

This summer, Sunday afternoons have been used to go hiking in a new area. In the fall, we usually go to a friend's house, so the guys can watch football. I think this year however, we might change it up a bit...I guess we'll see.

At the time, discipline isn't much fun. It always feels like it's going against the grain. Later, of course, it pays off handsomely, for it's the well-trained who find themselves mature in their relationship with God.

This summer my husband and I decided we're going to start doing the things we enjoyed doing when we first started dating. Every single Sunday this summer we've managed to get outside and do something. Most of the time it's hiking, but we've also done a lot of kayaking, long walks with our dogs, bike riding, etc. We had to take two Sundays off so far to do move and stack fire wood (Yuck!), but since we were still being active we figured it counted as "doing something".

lazing around! Maybe piddling in my garden, but nothing strenuous!

What this power is I cannot say; all I know is that it exists and it becomes available only when a man is in that state of mind in which he knows exactly what he wants and is fully determined not to quit until he finds it.

To spend time with friends or realatives, that I haven't seen for a while.

Everthing I do today, WILL effect my tomorrows, and effect those around me.
How do I want my tomorrows to be?


God gave me the the gift of CHOICE, I must learn to use it wisely each day.

Depends on the time of the year. Spending quiet time with a book and some music when it's cold and working in the yard/garden in warmer weather.

Spending quiet time reading the Sunday paper, and then whatever book I am currently reading. If the weather is right, I enjoy doing that outside. If I'm not reading, then I like to work on a craft project while watching tv or a movie. And I love getting into pajamas early on Sundays!

We go visiting after church those who are needing a visit. Such as those who are lonely, sick, or just need a DH and I enjoy this and it's what the Lord would want us to do. Not every Sunday is doing the above..other Sunday's are spent doing genealogy, etc. visiting with family, too

I would have to say a nice nap and especially when the temp is nice like it is now and you can just open the window and fall asleep with the breeze on you. It's very relaxing! Also being close to New York, an afternoon drive down to the City is sometimes a nice relaxing activity.
