The "to do" List

Both girls have been healthy enough to do a little shopping and helping around the house. We were getting ready for company today and expect my friend Helen to come and stay with us this week. There were several things we needed to do to prepare. Working together, we accomplished many of them. The house is clean, the laundry finished, the lawn is mowed, and we are closing in on our Sabbath rest feeling elated as we have scratched many tasks off our list. We've had some wonderful answers to prayer for our friends this week, and we now pause to take this day of rest and consider how God will hold the entire universe together without our help.

For six days, work is to be done, but the seventh day is a Sabbath of rest, holy to the Lord. Ex. 31:15
