Sunday Evenings

Monday, August 23, 2010

Sunday evenings are one of my favorite times of the week. Before the children go to sleep for the night we all climb onto our bed and Darren reads to them from the Illustrated Scriptures - the children call them picture scriptures. They love it.

After we are finished putting them all to bed, Darren and I alternate weeks sharing something with the other. This week we read this article from the Ensign.

Even if we have both already read the article, it is so different to be able to read it together and then talk about it. We usually end up talking for hours about the most important area's of our lives. I love this time to just be quite and still with Darren. This is the time when we refocus on where we are headed as a couple and as a family. This is the time that we strengthen forces for another week. This is a time we once again become united - in goals, in thoughts, in parenting, in purpose. There is still laundry to fold and dishes to wash and a million other things that need to be done, but they will have to wait until Monday morning. For this is a day of rest.
