That's What I Love About Sunday

I love Sunday. I really do, I look forward to it all week long. I love going to church and spending time with my church family. Anyone who knows me, knows I love the incredible time of Worship...closing my eyes and just communicating with my Savior. I love seeing all my kids, and hearing what they have to say in our Sunday school class. I love seeing all my friends and hearing about their week. One lady I spoke with this morning said that she loves coming to church, it's her favorite hang out. I liked that.

Then I come home to my husband and hear the sound that is so familiar on Sunday afternoons in our house. You got it, Sunday football...although this isn't just any Sunday football, it's play off football! Call me crazy, but there is just something relaxing about the roar of the crowd, the ref's whistles, the drone of the commentators. I love a good football game.

It made me think of a song by Craig Morgan that I just love. It's called "That's What I Love About Sunday". I wanted to post it here, but it is blocked from being embedded, so follow the link and enjoy. They lyrics are below.

Raymond's in his Sunday best,
He's usually up to his chest in oil an' grease.
There's the Martin's walkin' in,
With that mean little freckle-faced kid,
Who broke a window last week.
Sweet Miss Betty likes to sing off key in the pew behind me.

That's what I love about Sunday:
Sing along as the choir sways;
Every verse of Amazin' Grace,
An' then we shake the Preacher's hand.
Go home, into your blue jeans;
Have some chicken an' some baked beans.
Pick a back yard football team,
Not do much of anything:
That's what I love about Sunday.

I stroll to the end of the drive,
Pick up the Sunday Times, grab my coffee cup.
It looks like Sally an' Ron, finally tied the knot,
Well, it's about time.
It's 35 cents off a ground round,
Baby. cut that coupon out!

That's what I love about Sunday:
Cat-napping on the porch swing;
You curled up next to me,
The smell of jasmine wakes us up.
Take a walk down a back road,
Tackle box and a cane pole;
Carve our names in that white oak,
An' steal a kiss as the sun fades,
That's what I love about Sunday,
Oh, yeah.

Ooh, new believers gettin' baptized,
Momma's hands raised up high,
Havin' a Hallelujah good time
A smile on everybody's face.
That's what I love about Sunday,
Oh, yeah.

That's what I love about Sunday,
Oh, yeah.

Have a great day! Blessings!

I LOVE this song!

It reminds me of going to church as a kid. I grew up in the south and it makes me think of hot, humid days going to church in my dress, coming home for lunch, changing into shorts, eating lunch and then spending the afternoon on my bike chasing my big brother around until time to get ready to go back for Sunday evening service.

It makes me long for summer and church picnics and just hanging out!

Thanks for posting this song!
