Welcoming the Weekends
I don't know about you, but we Ritzes can hardly believe it is March already! Our weeks are always full with work and school, commuting, meetings, and such, but lately our weekends have been equally full. It seems that weekends have become about welcoming. Sometimes they are about welcoming a few days of rest in the midst of the busy, but other times they are about welcoming others into our lives and home, something we don't always have time to do Monday through Friday. At times this is exhausting and at times it is just what we need to feel rejuvenated and reconnected, but regardless of how it makes us feel it is always worthwhile. What are we on the planet for if not to impact those around us and be impacted by them? So bring on the house guests, bring on the dinners around our table and out at restaurants, bring on the game nights and the Bible studies and the youth group adventures! Welcome to our lives!
