Wouldn’t it be great to set aside an emotional and physical day of rest every single week? I do.  It’s called Sabbath and i do it every Saturday.  No business, no crafting for markets, no work, i don’t do housework or go shopping; i rest my mind and body.  I play with my kids, we put inspiring music on, we prepare special meals and drinks, we have friends over, read encouraging books, worship God and/or get out in nature.  I try not to let it get too busy or too structured.  I really do enjoy it.

I feel recharged spiritually and better connected with my family and friends.  Author Rob Bell says it this way:

“Sabbath is taking a day a week to remind myself that I did not make the world and that it will continue to exist without my efforts.”

So today i had an appointment with God and Sabbath and i enjoyed it immensely.   Shabbat Shalom (Sabbath peace)  to you all!
