“There have to be times to sit with your gratitude for the good gifts in your life that get forgotten in the rush. To celebrate and play and roll down hills and splash in water and spread paint on paper or walls or each other. There have to be times to sit and wait for the fullness of God that replenishes body, mind and soul—if you can even stand to be so full. There has to be time for the fullness of time or time is meaningless”. Ruth Haley Barton, Sacred Rhythms
And so we rest.
What does Sabbath rest mean to you, to your family? How do you make it happen practically, when that might not be a rhythm others understand? What advice do you have for singles, moms of young kids, moms of older kids, for practicing Sabbath?
We will take the week of July 17-23 off across our blog and social media platforms to give space to rest and practice Sabbath together.
We invite you to explore rest with us this month!
