I love Sundays!
On Sundays, the first thing I do when I get up is, I open all of the blinds in my house so that natural sunlight flows in. Even on dreary and rainy days, I open the blinds. Afterwards, I turn on one of my favorite gospel streaming stations and sing along with my favorite singers. Right now I am listening to the Winans sing, Goodness, Mercy, and Grace. It is a good reminder that without God’s goodness, mercy and grace, I would not be where I am today. Y’all, God is so good.
After I wash my face and brush my teeth (yes, good hygiene is a must!), I prepare breakfast. Most of the time I prepare a big breakfast on Sundays because it is the only day of the week when I have time to cook in the mornings. Plus, it is a tradition. Growing up, we always had a big breakfast on Sunday mornings. Followed by an even larger dinner, that afternoon. Today, I rarely prepare huge dinners. It is too time consuming, and I would rather spend my day relaxing, not working.
Then, after breakfast, I shower and prepare to attend church service (online). Sometimes while I wait for my service to start streaming, I look at other services that are already in progress. Following service, I typically relax by watching a good movie. However, lately, I have been volunteering after church service. This COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted my normal, but in a good way. Honestly, I believe I am a better person because of it. Now, I seem to appreciate my blessings more. I also cherish my time and the peaceful moments I have been granted. Which is something I should have been doing all along.
Well, that was a very small glimpse of how I typically spend my Sundays. How do you spend yours?
