Thanks for this reminder post! Our womens's Bible study is working through Mark and just talked about Jesus being Lord of the Sabbath and what that means for families today. I sent the post to our group.
Praying for you today!


I rememeber this post too! Very impactful and relevant. The difficult thing for my family is that my husband is a pastor, so his "sabbath" may not fall on a day that works for our children to have their "sabbath." I completely needed to hear your list of "no's" and was truly motivated by them.

I too appreciated this post. I love the freedom that Jesus opens for us in saying He is Lord of the sabbath.

For me Sunday is usually an extended sabbath as I love my daily times of sabbath
as well.

Joanne, what a celebration we will all enjoy as you are able to return to your blog! Praying for you my friend and all of your family. You are loved.


I enjoyed reading this topic, along with the others.
I want to add that, I had just grabbed a cookie and made some tea just as I began to read. So your last paragraph made me smile.
