What are you planning that will bring you rest? How will you find stillness for your soul?
I confess that I am going on vacation next week so am sort of off-loading my Sabbath to next week! It strikes me, though, that there are moments of Sabbath that I grab throughout the week. Today, coffee with a friend and a movie with my husband. Yesterday, dinner out. Tomorrow, a mixed bag of what can be categorized as work--but I love it so much it might as well be a spiritual quest! Sunday, I will be speaking at a church so definitely no Sabbath there!
Maybe my Sabbath moment for today was provided by a homeless woman, Anne, that I spoke with extensively today. She told me, "You just remember to tell everybody that God loves them!" Then she said, "Remember that God gave the people Saul because that is what the people wanted God listens and so should we." A wise woman, indeed. Maybe we need to listen more and talk less And we will have Sabbath moments all along.
Listen and attend with the ear of your heart. ~St. Benedict
