Sabbath day observance

 

Beautiful Sabbath day

Beautiful Sabbath day

Today, my Sabbath observance is very different from days of my youth. Being raised on a farm in Idaho meant certain chores needed to be completed each day (including Sunday) to assure that our animals had their essentials.  Likewise, we had a rotating irrigation turn in the summer months which would sometimes fall on Sunday. This required redirecting water to different parts of the farm providing the needed moisture for plant growth.  These activities were completed before or following attendance at church meetings. All of the other farm activities, such as harvesting, were scheduled for other days of the week. After leaving the farm, my Sabbath day activities changed dramatically.  I can now spend more time with family, study the scriptures, prepare lessons, and read good books.  Yes, there is often time for an afternoon nap.  How has this affected me?  The entire day can be focused upon spiritually uplifting activities without temporal distractions.  I value this change.

      Thank you for your response. I’m working on this principle of order. It seems to transfer to so many other things in my life, and contribute to overall peace.
