Preparation Day for the 7th Day Sabbath

Happy preparation day everyone! Sundown is so much earlier now, so lots to get done much quicker! We pace preparation out throughout the whole week now. It never worked for me/us to leave everything until Friday. Now we make sure shopping is done by Wed. Laundry and most cleaning done by Thursday pm. Sabbath meals now are standardized and simplified which can be prepared Fri am. I hated the Friday "beat-the-clock" marathons and this plan is so much more relaxing now, and successful! How do you manage your prep day(s)?

Those who are living in these last days, who acknowledge the binding claims of the law of God, have no ordinary responsibility. They are not to be satisfied with the surface truths. That which lies plainly revealed, which costs us no effort, will not be esteemed as highly as the treasure that costs us diligent, prayerful research and investigation. Celestial truth is represented as treasure hid in a field, "which when a man hath found, he hideth, and for joy thereof goeth and selleth all that he hath, and buyeth that field," that he may work every part of it to discover the golden ore or precious gems. The earth itself cannot reveal treasures of as great value as can the Bible. No toil can so repay the diligent worker, as can the search for truth. Let the mines of revelation be properly worked, and the unsearchable riches of Christ will be revealed.
