Lord’s Day Observance


Come bask in the sun.
Scared it would raise the Devil?
Good grief, Charlie Brown!

Seed words: “Bask”, “Grief”, “Raise”.

About Ben Naga

The Spirit that graces me with its passing has no name and stems not from thoughts and words, though it gathers them up as it flows, but from feeling.

  2. Glad it gave you a smile.

    “Herbert Henry Martin, (who) in 1925 was elected to Lord’s Day Observance Society earned the name ‘Misery Martin’ for his untiring efforts on behalf of the league.

    “Yet Mrs. Grundy and the ‘Miser Martins’ want to regulate the way in which the folk spend their day of rest for fear of the undesirably of pleasure, especially on the Sundays, the day of rest. The sabbatarians took a low view, on the whole, of the morals and likely fate of Sabbath breakers. There was also a fear of sexual indulgences with free access to places of social intercourse on the Sundays, such as sporting events, parks, and even in the access to museums and exhibitions. Yet, despite the efforts of the prudish ranks, the barriers were pulled down and today people enjoy their day of rest to the pleasure of their choosing.”



  3. How I miss the sun… It’s only been a few days without snow now. Can’t wait for summer!
