A River of Stones: Day 7

Today is the Sabbath. Candles are lit. Work ceases. Quiet descends. We share a meal, share a conversation, share spiritual renewal, share our selves with each other. We walk to schul (synagogue), pray, and eat some more. Gratitude is the attitude for the day. We rest from all creative endeavors for one full day, sundown to sundown. Then, refreshed, our week begins anew.

    1. Growing up, I did not observe the Sabbath to the degree that I do today. But now I see the spiritual, mental and physical benefit of taking one day a week to “retreat” from the rat-race, reflect and recharge. “Restore inner balance” says it perfectly! Thanks for stopping by.

    1. Thank you, Patrecia. It is good to see you here. I hope that means that Neville is back home recuperating. I’ll hop over to your site and get caught up. Thanks for stopping by. Hugs and prayers always.

    1. Thanks Kathy. I am really liking the small stones, too. I considered continuing the challenge for the rest of the year but that thought was gone as fast as it came! šŸ™‚ Thanks for stopping by.
