Day of Rest?

Exodus is chock full of verses that talk about observing the Sabbath. Sabbath is defined as a day of rest and/or worship. There are all kinds of articles and studies that discuss how having a day of rest makes a person more productive the rest of the week. Most athletic programs/exercise routines recommend at least one day of rest each week.

So my questions for yall are:
Do you observe a day of rest? If so, which day of the week do you observe Sabbath on? What does a typical Sabbath look like for you?

  1. Currently our day of rest is on Mondays. Now that school is starting again, it will likely change back to Fridays. Mondays are a hard day to "rest" for those in ministry because you're still looking back and analyzing everything that happened the day before. Things that could have been different, could have been improved, things that went well and things that just really knocked the point home.

    Our day of rest usually involves going out and doing something with the family. Technically, I'm working - but it's just babysitting for a little girl who is so good that it's absolutey unbelievable so it's not really work. We go shopping quite a bit on our days off. Chip might go play golf with a friend. I might spend the entire day curled up in a chair with a book or working on my own. We might work around the house - but because we WANT to, not because we have to.
