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!
