I love Sundays. I love the peaceful feelings and joy that I seem to always wake up to on these beautiful days. I love being given time to pause from countless hours of school work and classes and instead focus on the life of my Savior, Jesus Christ. To focus on who I am and how I can improve. To focus on how I can better serve others. To focus on the words and teachings of living and passed prophets and apostles.
Sundays have most definitely become my favorite day of the week. I'll admit, it hasn't always been that way. As a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, we believe in keeping the Sabbath Day holy. In other words, we try to set Sunday apart from the rest of the week by not doing activities that we'd do on other days, such as shopping, hanging out with friends, watching tv, etc. As a child I viewed this day as the "boring" day because I couldn't do the activities that I did the rest of the week. But as I've grown older, I've begun to appreciate this beautiful day more and more. In a world where there is so much busyness and chaos, I look forward and thrive off of this day because it gives me the opportunity to slow down and let peace flow into my life. I know I am a better, happier, and kinder person because of it, and for that, I am immensely grateful.
