Lucy was so tired. She had been to school, piano practice, horseback riding lessons and church throughout the week. Friday night was her favorite night of the week because it was Family Movie Night.
“Mom, I wish every night was Family Movie Night. I get so tired of going so many places and doing so many things all week. It’s nice to be home with everyone.” Lucy was helping her mom pour drinks for her sisters and her brother while her father was plating pizza.
Her parent’s paused and looked at each other. “We understand,” her father said slowly. “Your mom and I love Friday night’s too! Its great to have everyone in one place, doing something relaxing together. We know the week can be tiring, but God does say that there will be busy times in our lives, and slow times. Let’s try our hardest to make the best out of both, okay Lucy?”
Lucy agreed. They all gathered together to watch the movie and Lucy realized that if God knew she was going to have to work hard at her busy times and her rest times, than she would be able to do her best for Him.
