Working Vacation

We are celebrating Labor Day by laboring over our "to do" list. The girls are both having some very good days. Therefore, now is the time to get things done around the house. This past week I painted the walls and trim of our dining room and finished a couple more projects that have been waiting for me for three years. Yesterday we all spent the day working around the house. Paul Burton helped most of the day so we were able to accomplish quite a bit.

When we got home from church today we sat down in an improved dining room. The color is called Hydrangea Floweret; Kathryn's favorite flower. It's refreshing and we all like it. We work well together and are thankful for the joy of accomplishing tasks as a family. But greater still is the joy of holding hands around the table, acknowledging God's goodness, and thanking Him for all He has done for us. Right in the middle of a working weekend is the Sabbath Day, when we are called to rest. And that is just what we plan to do today.
