As Unto the Lord...

Today is, as some would call it, the Lord's day! This title we ascribe to Sunday always gives me pause to think because don't all our days belong to the Lord? It's also the day we set aside as the 7th day, the day of rest, even though the calendar seems to think it is the first day of the week! Crazy, huh?

Anyway, I digress..Tim is gone, Rachel is at church and I am home with the other 4 ~ 3 of whom are sick with coughs! As I pondered what to do with my morning I decided to cut the grass. Not exactly restful by some people's standards, but oh so restful by mine! It may have something to do with only being able to see my children's mouths move while no intelligible sounds are picked up by my ears! LOL! Maybe it is the time I have to pray and contemplate what the Lord has been showing me lately! At any rate, I love it!

This morning there was a chill in the air and a beautiful sun overhead! The trees were getting ready to bust open and the daffodils were smiling proudly! Even the purple clover that had taken over our grass had a beauty of its own ~ until I knocked it all down with the mower! The kids all had fun playing basketball and hitting the tennis ball! All in all, a lovely morning...

I missed not being able to fellowship with another group of believers, but the fellowship I had with the Lord was sweet. I was able to pray for my family and friends and I worshipped the One Who created all that my senses took in! I sang songs of praise! My heart and mind are at rest because...

I cut grass as unto the Lord!

  2. Barb,
    I loved reading about your time worshiping and cutting grass. I love cutting the grass. No noises, no interruptions, just me the smell of grass and the Lord. I have had some of the best times of worship and talking to the Lord while mowing.
    Thanks for sharing your Lord's day. :)
