Sabbath Moments - Peace

Sabbath moments are a way of taking time to rest in God, to enjoy God in silence or in nature. The word sabbath comes from a Hebrew word meaning "cease." And that is what we need to do sometimes, cease our activity and live in the moment and breathe in God.
I invite you to share your Sabbath moment(s) here on Saturdays. Be sure to sign into Mr. Linky below!

Peace is sometimes hard to find. But I was able to find it for a few minutes the other night. It was very late. I went out to my lanai, looked out at the water, still and peaceful, reflecting the lights from nearby homes across the canal. Beautiful scene. And quiet. Very quiet.

Went out of town to spend Thanksgiving with our large, multi-generational family. A large house, full of people of all ages. A lot of family time, and family closeness. Prayer, food, conversation and laughter.

Devotionals every day. Working on retreat every day. As I prepare for advent, I also prepare for the coming of Christ into my heart. I pray for more awareness of the ways in which Jesus is present in my everyday life. And I thank God for these moments of awareness.

It's great to gather with family and friends, share a delicious meal, and laugh together. It makes those feast days stand out.

I certainly agree with you about Advent being a special time - finding God in every moment, looking for him, yearning for him. There is peace in this journey
