Sorry to hear you say, sincerely, not sarcastically. I am part of the SDA church, and I don’t claim to observe it properly, especially since the closest part of my family to me is not a baptized or official member of the church, which has its challenges sometimes.
I personally have found it to be a true blessing ever since I decided to go back ty SDA roots. There were many years during which the weekend were spent fixing and enhancing our earthly home(s), shopping, and playing competitive sports, Etc. and as Sunday night rolled in and considered going back to the office on Monday I was physically and emotinally spent.
At the beginning I will admit it was an effort, I had to really work hard at “giving up” what most of us consider “our time”, let alone leading my wife and growing boys into it this new concept . But eventually the benefits of literal physical rest, making a point to consider beging together, and enjoy things spiritual, began to show in how we lived as a family, and our being prepared to tackle the new week.
Now that our sons are gown up it is a blessing having planted this seed into them and seeing them enjoy their own family and friends i a different way.
