Weekly Celebration! (July 10)

Happy Friday!

There is just something about Fridays that are generally more happy than the other days of the week. I even remember as a kid ABC use to call their Friday night lineup TGIF, “Thank God it’s Friday!” It was a time to rest, relax, and laugh after the end of a long week. For many of us, though I know not all, the reason that Friday is such a happy day is because we know the weekend is coming, and while we may have some projects that need to be tackled, the weekend means rest. We need rest. Rest from work. Rest from the constant go and the weekday craziness. Time to recharge physically, emotionally, and spiritually. God actually modeled rest for us and has commanded us to rest from the very beginning in Genesis 2:1-3:

So the heavens and the earth and everything in them were completed. 2 On the seventh day God had completed his work that he had done, and he rested on the seventh day from all his work that he had done. 3 God blessed the seventh day and declared it holy, for on it he rested from all his work of creation.
