It's the time when many of our families go away for the weekend before the colder weather comes to the Northeast! This brings to my mind the beauty of the Sabbath image in our faith. Time to refresh, time to grow in relationship with God and family and loved ones. TIme to slow down our pace. Time to let our inner selves be a sponge to the wonder of God's creation all around us. It is good to go away for a while to rest, to think, to laugh, to pray and to be at peace.
Sabbath. That is what our Sunday's were meant to be. Time to slow down and rejuvenate our lives with God and others, especially our family. Now, it is sad to say, that in many places, Sunday has become the busiest day of the week. We have filled our lives with things that could be done another day.
I pray to be able to rekindle the spirit of the Sunday Sabbath. Can we do this? Will we be the better off for it? I think so. :)
