Sabbath.  Seventh day.  Rest.

To be mentioned today in the sermon, but tossed out this morning for all.  The problem with Sabbath isn't that we do too many things on Sunday.

The problem is, we were meant to work and we were meant to rest.  Most of us do not rest.  We rush from one thing to the next with no peace in our lives, only to face our deathbed totally unprepared. 

We humans need to take some time, make some time to rest.

When we rest we feel better.  When we rest we get back in touch with the best of who we are.  When we rest we find the presence of God.  Isn't that what sabbath is all about?

It's a beautiful day in God's world, be sure to see the good.

Today, the rain fell, a baby napped peacefully in her church clothes, a husband and wife laid still in the quiet of their home, and God restored three hearts and minds.

(All of this happened during the church service we planned to go to.)
