Working on the Sabbath

Working on Sunday.  I grew up being taught that you don't work on Sunday.  It was something that I really didn't have an issue with.  I was a teenager.  Of course I wasn't working on Sunday.

Now that I am an adult, I find my husband's job and even my own occasionally, pulling us out to work on a Sunday.  For my husband, he doesn't have a choice.  His career choice demands he occasionally work on Sundays.  Mine on the other hand - I find myself sitting down at my computer to work on a new design, or answer some emails when I have some free time on Sundays. I find it relaxing.

It's been 20 years since I was a teenager.  Times have changed. Occupations have changed.  Hours of operations for many businesses have changed.  This change requires many people to work on Sunday.  The Holy Sabbath. But how do we accept this new time that often requires us to work on Sunday?

A few months ago we had a family member needing some help.  It was on a Sunday. We were sitting in Sacrament meeting when we got the text asking us if we could help.  My husband and I didn't hesitate.  We told our kids what was needed, and they could stay at church, or come with us.  They all chose to come with us to help.  After we were finished helping, we were discussing it.  It was such a great feeling to know that sometimes instead of being at church learning how to be Christlike, we need to go and be Christlike.  This was a huge, kind-of-but-not-so-much, an eye opening experience.  We related this to how some people have to work on Sunday.

This experience and discussion has really blessed our family, and helped us understand that sometimes when we do get pulled away from the home on Sunday to work, or to do whatever is needed, it's okay.  You will still be blessed, and you can still learn about the Savior, even if you aren't sitting in a pew.

There is a wonderful article on about working on the Sabbath.  CLICK HERE to read it.


Capes for Kids

**This is an ongoing project for me, so although this post will eventually "be an old post", I am still accepting capes all the time.**

I love to see people helping children in 3rd world countries.  I know this brings sunshine to many, many people.  I've helped with the Days for Girls organization that helps young women with their menstrual cycles in these 3rd world countries.

I get a little sad, however, thinking about all the children here in America who could use those services.  I have found one that I think will be a very good fit for me.  The project of capes does not require any sewing (the pattern they have in Family Fun Magazine - CLICK HERE FOR PATTERN on page 2) - I don't sew, so this is a GREAT one for me!!

It is from an organization called Enchanted Makeovers.  The project is called Capes for Kids.

I would like to ask my readers to help me make this happen!  I ship these capes off when I have at least 20 capes to send to this organization to distribute.  Will you help me?

How to help:
1.  Go to the link to make a cape (the Family Fun pattern)
2.  Email me when the cape(s) are complete.   I will email back to you my address to ship them to (postage paid by you) or you can drop them off at my house.
3.  You can (but not required) enclose any kind of cash donation with your capes.  100% of this donation will be used for this Capes for Kids project - 100%!!
4.  When I receive at least 20 capes - I will ship them to Enchanted Makeovers.
5.  They will distribute them where they are needed most.

If you have any questions, please post a comment on the post and I will reply to it.  This way, if others have the same questions as you - they won't need to ask again.

Let's work together to bring sunshine to the lives of these kids in shelters.

Thank you so much for your service and donations!!
