Sabbath

And on the seventh day God ended His work which He had done, and He rested on the seventh day from all His work which He had done. Then God blessed the seventh day and sanctified it, because in it He rested from all His work which God had created and made. 
Genesis 2:2,3

A few weeks ago at church there was a message on Sabbath. There was way to much good info to get too much into it now, but it was great!

After service my husband and I were able to talk and figure out what Sabbath might look like for our family. Obviously having 3 kids and knowing very very soon we will have a newborn, a day with no work isn't really possible. But we can have a day that we put our day to day work aside, pour into our boys and spend in intentional worship to the Lord.

We have realized that it will take some learning and adjusting to make it as much of a day of rest as possible. 

Here are some pictures of our first attempt Sabbath.





poor guy, the sun was in his eyes and he was trying so hard not to squint

yes this is the shirt mentioned in this post, and also here and yes I still wear it weekly...

Our world will soon become busier, and that makes me even more excited to have a special day set aside to  "rest" Our souls are slowly being re-refreshed, truly a gift from the Lord!
