Sabbath Sundown

A few minutes ago we had our family prayer time to close out the Sabbath Day.  We prayed for our family and friends, and for God's mercy with the hard things happening in the world today.  Although we love having that time together, it means the end of the Sabbath Day and beginning of the work week.  Since Monday is trash day on our street,  Paul's first task is to take the garbage out to the road for pick up.  I get Qavah's clothes ready for her Monday morning trip to the lab for blood work, and Kathryn looks at the calendar to remind us of all the weekly appointments.  With a twinge of sadness, I have to admit that I wish Sundays were a few hours longer. 

"Sunday is the golden clasp that binds together the volume of the week." 
~ Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
