The Sabbath Day

Today is the Sabbath. Some have difficulty resting on the seventh day. Not me. My husband says that I can waste an entire afternoon reading a magazine which is precisely what I intend to spend an hour doing after I finish this post.

I rose early this morning and greeted the sun. I find it so refreshing to spend a quiet hour or two in my special space reading and sipping my favorite brew.

It was my turn to greet this morning so we were at the house of worship a little earlier than usual. The message this week was about Making the Most of Opportunity.  The scripture verse is Be very careful, then, how you live—not as unwise but as wise, making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil. Ephesians 5:15-16. If you would like to listen I have added the link.

We then headed home for a very tasty lunch of homemade low fat clam chowder. I made this last night and I will say it was absolutely wonderful and only eight points if you are a weight watcher like me.

Since the day was bright and sunny, temps in the mid forties we headed out with the dog for an adventure.

Let your curser dwell on the image for the title.

I can see the sunset from the window where I sit to type. The winterscape is framed in pink. There should be a quarter moon hanging in the sky tonight.

The night will end magazine then a movie. A refreshing end to the week.

Thanks for reading.

  1. It sounds like the perfect way to spend the Sabbath. We were talking about what “Sabbath” means recently in our bible study group and we were reminded that it is intended to be a day of rest. Rest, as in not lazing about, but activity designed to be a refreshment of the soul so we can face our working week with renewed zest and vigour. It sounds like you managed to do that perfectly today…I’m envious!!

    Great looking chowder by the way…yum yum!
