Today I am grateful for sabbath, a day of rest. For many clergy people, Monday is the new Saturday. It’s our day off. It’ not easy to get a day off — not easy for anyone these days. In our plugged in, always in touch world, it can be very difficult to unplug and rest. But it is so important. Rest is the way we recharge ourselves physically, mentally and spiritually.
So today I am grateful for time to unwind; for the company of loved ones; naps; reading; good friends who check in; my puppy Quinn curled up next to me; living in the now and being present to the day. And I am most grateful to have gainful employment from which to need a sabbath.
How do you take use your sabbath time?
