Our church has three services... one on Saturday night and two on Sunday.  We've been attending the evening service for quite some time now and I've found that Sunday has become my absolute favorite day of the week.  Often getting six people dressed and out the door by 9:00 in the morning was very stressful, leaving Doug and I frustrated with the kids {and sometimes each other}, the kids upset with us for rushing and leaving no one's heart ready to be at church.  Saturday night services allow us to get ready during the afternoon, eat an early supper and finally get into the van, usually at a more relaxed pace. 
Sundays are now spent with a few cups of coffee in our jammies, reading the news, catching up on each others thoughts, sharing vacation ideas with the kids, enjoying brunch and really connecting as a family. After our morning catch up, everyone sort of does their own thing and we seldom have anything planned.  Maybe we'll go for a country drive, maybe we'll go sledding at Grandma & Grandpa's, maybe we'll stay home and watch movies or play games.  It is truly a day of rest. 

Enjoy your day!
