That's what I like about Sunday

Sunday in the Park, Seurat
One of my Franciscan Sister friends was telling a group of us the other night about a photo essay on Sunday.  The photographer was doing a study on what Sunday meant to people.  I think this is a lovely idea, and can't wait to see the result of his work.  It also made me think of what Sunday meant to me.

First, Sunday means church.  It anchors my week, makes me feel connected to God and others and generally sets the tone for my week and my life.  I can never figure out what people who don't go to church do on Sundays (one of my friends said, "sleep");  it would seem like just another day, and that seems rather sad.

Sunday means rest to me, too, or I suppose an excuse to be lazy.  I can choose to do whatever I choose to do, as long as it isn't "work".  That's so lovely!

Sunday also means family - a day to hang out together, even if you're not doing anything special.

What do you like about Sunday?
