R is for Rest...or Relief...or Respite

What a robust people, what a nation of thinkers we might be, if we would only lay ourselves on the shelf occasionally and renew our edges! ~ Mark Twain

It is Sunday and we are holding fast to the 3rd (or in some religions the 4th) commandment and "remember and keep holy the Sabbath Day".  With the whirlwind of a day that was yesterday, it's to be expected.

Yesterday was absolutely LOVELY!  In fact things were going so well yesterday that I allowed a spark of pessimism present itself in that surely something would go wrong.  No, that spark never took hold anywhere.  It was perfect.  The girls danced beautifully.  Their curls held up (yes, this IS important). We had a tons of friends and family over afterwards for homemade hero sandwiches (of which I still have an entire 3 ft roast beef left for today), chips, asian slaw, fruit salad and a tray of homemade brownies and chocolate chip cookie bars.  An exhausting day, to be sure, but one for the memory books.

God has been so very good to us!
