Sunday is noted as the first day of the week on our calendars.  It’s also the last day of the weekend.  To most Christians, it is a day of worship and rest.  My oldest grandson even used that as an excuse not to do any kind of work on Sunday.  We may have a difference of opinion on what Sunday means, but we can be sure that it’s a day to prepare for the week ahead.  Whether you prepare by thanking God for all your blessings of the past week, or spend time refueling yourself in a house of worship, it should be a day in which we take time to think about our Creator.

One day a week really isn’t enough.  We should begin each day with God as our guide.  Corporate worship, however, gives us an opportunity to publicly declare our faith, our thanksgiving and our praise.

With summer at the front door, don’t take a vacation from God.  He doesn’t need our praise.  He is beyond our thanksgiving, yet He is glad when we come into His house to share in His salvation, His means of grace and the spiritual uplifting each one of us desperately needs to survive another week.  We come confessing our sin, knowing that He has forgiven us.   We rest in the assurance of the forgiveness of our sins and the promise of eternal life.

What a great way to start every new week.  See you in church!!




As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on

    Can I have mine without coffee? I haven’t had any coffee for over 40 years and I haven’t had any caffeine, except chocolate, since 2001. With all of my illness, we haven’t been to church in a while. Last Sunday night, my wife had a gall stone attack. Now, we are looking to schedule her surgery, praying it doesn’t become an emergency. We got to Sunday school today, but my wife passed me a note that she was tired – so no worship service. We are determined for next Sunday, but then we were determined today. By the way, no need for pain killers for an entire week as of dawn tomorrow. I think I am well, finally. Next, my wife.

      You certainly aren’t required to have coffee. I don’t drink it anymore either. I feel sad that you’ve had to miss church because of illness, but I know you are still in the Word every day and that is a close connection to our heavenly Father too. We can’t always make it to church for one reason or another, but we shouldn’t feel guilty about that or it becomes more of what we “do” than what we receive from God.

      I’m very happy to hear about your recovery and that it’s going well. Sorry about your wife though. Sometimes those things go in streaks as reminders of how much we need God in our lives. I will keep her in my prayers as well and that she will be rid of her pain soon.

  2. Sunday is a chance to recharge physically, emotionally and spiritually. But you are absolutely right: it shouldn’t be the only day that we make time for God! Great post as always, dear Kathy! ❤ ❤


  3. What a great post Kathy. Gathering for worship to start your week is a wonderful start to any week…and yes any day.
