An intentional Sabbath

Today.

I am making an intentional Sabbath.

I do not think I have really ever done this before.

Intentionally, that is.

Rest

of spirit, of body, of mind, of heart.

I am a huge fan of boundaries that are appropriate to one’s station in life.

Have I broken those boundaries?

I think I have allowed toxicity to creep under my well placed fences

and overwhelm my energy.

That, or perhaps it’s just the lupus taking advantage of a busier work time.

Either way,

it’s time for me to be truly intentional about honoring God’s day.

To rest.

To ponder.

To play.

To drink coffee, do puzzles, weave, dream, write, draw.

Or maybe,

just to sit.

I will allow the Spirit to call the shots today…

I am a fabric artist and a professional minister in the Catholic Church. I am married for 40+ years to a most fabulous man. We have 4 adult children, 2 daughter-in-laws ( who we also consider to our children!) and 4 grandbabies. I love to weave, paint silk, sew and design garments for myself; bead, read, write and color. I am also a spiritual Companion/Director and have a special place in my soul for women who are healing and in need of healing from trauma and abuse. I love coffee, quiet reflective prayer time at my kitchen table and long walks to breathe in the Holy Spirit. I would like to learn how to spin yarn and will someday create a spun, hand dyed/painted, beaded, woven fabulous garment of peace!
