And I just don't quite get it.
Are there really people whose lives are so together
that they can take an entire day
and just worship
for the next week?
Those people really exist?
I got up and went to church,
I went to Sam's Club
and the regular grocery store,
and unloaded $300 worth of groceries.
I worked on taxes.
I took my son to get his hair re-braided
And did work in the car for two hours
while I waited for him.
I fed my kids.
I did a couple of hours of school work,
And now it's ten o'clock,
And I still haven't written my Slice of Life,
or prepared for the professional development I have to lead tomorrow,
And the sink is full of dishes
that I need to do before I go to bed.
I just don't get the Sabbath thing.
I could relate to this post is so many ways. I sometimes think that I should commit to taking one day a week off...to "keeping the Sabbath". I wonder what would happen over time?
Something to think about. I like the way you questioned and kept the reader going through your short, quick tasks.
I too think about this often. For me, I think the desire and the discipline of the Sabbath are two very separate things. I have one, and the other is all-too elusive it seems.
