Sunday's are busy. Except for, maybe, an hour or two in the afternoon, our Sunday's are pretty much non-stop. It isn't truly a day of rest. But it is a day of worship to God. It is a day of offering ourselves in service to others. It is a day for eating a meal together with family. It is a day for opening our home and fellowshipping with others. It is a day given to God.
