And then there is time to do whatever you and yours want to do. The picture of the horse looking over the fence reminds us country folk that a horseback ride might be nice. Or we might choose an afternoon at the old fishing hole or even taking a walk in the woods. Possibly a barbeque with friends is in order.
For city folk, maybe its a movie, a sporting event or even a special cultural activity that is enjoyable. It can also be reading a good book, doing a little gardening or sometimes the best of all, taking an afternoon nap with no cares and no worries to clutter your head.
It really doesn't matter what you do or don't do, it's just important that you use this special day to relax and enjoy life, something that we often forget about during the stresses of everyday life in the busy working world. We need Saturday, it refreshes and renews our bodies for another week which will be coming soon. But just for now, forget about it.
And remember that renewal is required by the spiritual side of your life as well. Just like your physical being, your spiritual life also needs to be renewed and refreshed in order to function properly. This renewal is provided by the Holy Spirit which comes to us through the opening of our heart to God through Jesus. So after your fun today, give the door to your heart a little nudge so that it will open wide tomorrow on the Lord's Day. Let the Son shine in.
Have a great day today and remember, life is short and uncertain, so don't waste the opportunity that Saturday brings. God bless you all.
