Yesterday, our sacrament meeting theme was “Keeping the Sabbath Day Holy.” The first two speakers gave pretty much the standard list of things to do and not do on the Sabbath, but the third speaker started by saying, “Sunday is my favorite day of the week.”
Most people I know in the church have mixed feelings about Sunday. Yes, it’s nice to meet friends at church, do some focused gospel study, and get the occasional spiritual uplift. But if you have small children and/or a large family, getting ready for church can be about as fun as herding rattlesnakes. And LDS meetings aren’t noted for being stimulating.
So, I was anxious to hear why he loved Sundays so. He said that he loved Sundays because it was the only day he could take a nap.
