As most of you realize my husband is a pastor. And as many of you know MOST churches meet on Sunday mornings.
But not ours!
Our church meets on Sunday evenings ONLY. That's right, Sunday morning we are still lazing around in our jammies while most churches are having their services.
It took us a while to get used to having Sunday mornings free but you know what? I LOVE it!
Weekends are so much more relaxing now! We don't have to worry about the kids being out too late on Saturday nights because they can just relax on Sunday mornings. For example yesterday? We went and had a very enjoyable leisurely barbeque with our friends, got home late and then AIDEN slept in until 9:45 am. That is almost 10 people. My son? Has NEVER slept that long. Ever. In his whole life. And how tragic would it have been if I had to wake him up to go to church?
Now we have no rushing around like crazy people trying to get everyone looking presentable and out the door at the crack of dawn every Sunday morning. It is delightful.
Sunday actually FEELS like a day of rest now!
Pastor's are notoriously exhausted after preaching on Sundays and my pastor-husband is no exception. But now? Instead of him having to endure the whole rest of the day feeling wiped right out and me getting annoyed that he is so darn useless for most of the day- he can spend Sunday mornings and early afternoons enjoying his family then just completely veg after church is done on Sunday evening! Perfect!
Yes, the kids can be a little crazy at church because it coincides with the supper hour and keeps them out a little later than their regular bedtime... but my kids were pretty nutso Sunday mornings anyway!
So the point is- I LOVE having church on Sunday evenings.
