sunday afternoon

sunday afternoon sun peeking through mostly closed blinds

ceiling fans purr white noise -- 
the only sound in the house

church clothes kicked off in corners

stomachs full of bread and cheese and meat; 
hearts full of laughter around the table

unfolded laundry waiting in the dryer; 
unfinished chores can wait
tangled arms and sprawled legs and 
winding lines stretched out like a very long river

this is the glory of sunday afternoon,
and what we like to call the
Nazarene Nap

 find an unmade bed, 
a made-for-tv movie and a cushy couch, 
or a stretch of carpet and relax. 
you've earned it.  


  1. Oh, I love Sunday afternoons. They are a glory, for sure.
