A Day Of Rest

 
 

A Day Of Rest
By Marie C Neubauer
~

I remember yesterday

Sunday was a quiet family day,

A lovely dinner cooked by Mom

Everyone more relaxed and calm,

Families worshipping God that day,

Taking time out from work and play,

And I am sure that God knew best,

When He ordained a day of rest!

All the stores would close that day,

So that families could rest and pray,

Time off from life’s cares and stress,

In America it was known as a day of rest,

How gradually this all would change,

Now it really sounds quite strange,

But I’m sure that God knew best,

When He ordained a day of rest!
