Write Queen Wonders Why Is It

I am not what some people would call a zealous fanatical Christian, but I am a Christian and the lack of religion or Christianity in our country bothers me, now as I get older even more

Years ago my husband and I owned a pizza shop which I managed. We were closed Easter, Thanksgiving and Christmas. Otherwise we were open seven days a week. Sunday we didn’t
open until four in the afternoon, but we were still open on Sunday. My husband and I didn’t argue about much, but had our share of arguments about opening on Sunday.

We didn’t have much spare time for ‘fun’ but in the summer we took our RV down to Kennerdell where we set up a camp for the season. As often as we could we escaped to our camp. When I say escape that was literally true because that was before cell phones.

This one particular weekend we had escaped on Saturday. Sunday I told my husband we had to break camp early because I had to open the shop at four. He asked me what for? I replied that when the help didn’t work, the boss had to.

That was the last Sunday Rollie’s Pizza Shop was ever opened. You know what? We made more money in six days than we ever did in seven. Why? Of course overhead was cut, but I have always believed it was because we were obeying our teachings by resting on the seventh day and/or our customers, protestant, catholic and Jewish, respected us for our decision.

That happened to us back in the 70s. What has that got to do with today? I have a friend who drives a delivery truck for a reputable firm. How often does he get to go to church with his family? Not often. Why? The company makes deliveries on Sunday. They can not make deliveries on their schedule because most of the customers go to church so the company only has certain times to find the customer at home. #1 – why do the customers have to have a Sunday delivery if they’re going to be in Church and they won’t use the delivered goods in church and #2 – doesn’t the company realize they’d be more respected if they honored the Lord’s Day?

I know times have changed, but when I was growing up in a small western Pennsylvania town there was NOTHING open on Sunday. Mother did her grocery shopping on Saturday. If Daddy needed gas, which wasn’t likely because we walked to church, school and work, he filled the car
on Saturday.

I realize I grew up in a better day, but I don’t seem to have suffered for it. If the thinking Christian would think about the ruination of the values we are all suffering, they could, one by one, do something about it. Do you drop off your kids for Sunday school, or do you take them? Do you go to church as a family, or don’t any of you even go to church? Would you housewives be willing to grocery shop on Saturday?

I realize industry would cease if certain people, like firemen, nurses, EMTs and such, didn’t work on Sunday, but bear this in mind – “The family that prays together, stays together.”

Remember, God loves you, and so do I.
