The French-German theologian Albert Schweitzer summing up the importance of Sundays once said, "Do not let Sundays be taken from you. If your soul has no Sunday, it becomes an orphan." Sample this, not only can a well-spent Sunday sum up an otherwise crazy week but can also set the tone for one to follow! While we relate to the fact that Sundays should only be about you and your bed, indulgence is the only thing that can draw out lazy bums like myself.
