What is it about Sunday afternoons that makes us sleepy? I don’t normally take a nap any other day of the week, but come Sunday – I can’t keep my eyes open.
This is not something new. It’s been that way for years. When Steve was in preaching school and we spent Sundays with members of a small congregation – I had a room at everyone’s house to take a nap! In fact, it was expected. “Courtney – your bed is ready for your nap!” Later, when the girls were small – Steve knew that he had “Daddy Duty” on Sunday afternoons because “Mommy is taking a nap!”
Why is it so easy to fall asleep on Sunday afternoons? I believe that it’s because of the sense of peace that comes after worshiping the Lord with my church family in the morning. Singing praises, partaking of the communion, studying His Word, and hugging dear friends puts me in such a contented mood. I love going to worship! Then, feed me a good lunch, and …….. well…. I’ll admit it…..I just woke up! God Bless, Courtney
