Our Day of Rest

And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all His work which he had made. Genesis 2:2

The whole family looks forward to the Sabbath day but today I was looking forward to it more than usual. I had a great time with old friends and meeting new ones at a scrapbooking retreat on Friday night. I stayed up way to late though and only got about 4 hours of sleep. Today I was still so tired and was happy to hear that small group had been postponed to next week. So after eating Sunday dinner at Josh's parents house we headed home and did our usual Sunday routine. Within 10 minutes everyone was out of their Sunday best and into comfy PJ's. The kids layed on the couch and watched a movie (Liah fell asleep) and Josh and I took a much needed nap.
When everyone was up Liah reminded us that Josh had told her we could watch our wedding video which we did. After the video Josh and Blake had their usual Star Wars Lego game time.

Note: After uploading the above pic of Liah I realized I uploaded it before I rotated it and doing it over seems like to much work. It is the Sabbath day after all.

I decided to get some more scrapbooking done and Liah came up and watched me for awhile and then started asking if she could scrapbook. I have been planning on getting her some scrapbook supplies for her 4th birthday so her and I could have a fun thing to do together while Josh and Blake have their video game time. I decided to let her start her first scrapbook page tonight. I was actually expecting her to just have paper and stickers randomly placed all over but was very impressed at how well she planned out where everything should go. She completed 2 pages tonight and was very proud of herself. I think Josh is wondering if this family can afford two scrapbook addicts.

This is her first page completed. She is definitely a natural. The only thing I helped her with was spelling out the word DANCE.

So that is how we spent our Sabbath this week and I can't wait for next week.


  1. Hey Kristine,
    just wanted to check in with you. Thank you for praying for me Wednesday night. I finished out the week with momentum and I think it will continue through this coming week. I even got some much needed, and beautiful sleep two nights in a row.
    Hope you are feeling well! Have a good Monday :)

  2. YEAH! I love that you've blogged again. I should do that 5 minute rule, by the way. It would help my schedule, too. My motivation has really been off lately! Anyway, I LOVE the pictures of the kids. Liah is a natural! I think she might put me to shame :) Also, I hear the love in your words about Blake. You have two great kids. Have a good Sabbath in two days! Love you.
