Oh how I love Sabbath! Refreshment of the soul, of the body, of the mind… I guard it carefully and look forward to it with anticipation each week!
I thought it would be fun for everyone to share what they do on this special day? How do you set it apart? What kind of meals do you eat? Do you stay home and rest or go visit others? What is your favorite thing about Sabbath? Do you have a favorite teacher you like to listen to? A favorite version of Scripture?
I will start. We set the day apart first of all by not working. We don’t wash dishes unless we run out, we don’t bake or cook from scratch, we don’t do any housework except putting the dishes neatly on the counter.
Our usual meals are cold cereal for breakfast (that’s a treat we only have once a week) and salad or sandwiches for lunch. Sometimes we will start a chicken in the crock pot the night before and then snack on that all day. We usually try to have a special dessert and some chips too. All things that we don’t normally have during the week.
We stay home 2-3 weeks out of the month. I just find it more restful. The other week we will drive to visit other couples or families that we know and spend the day with them. We love doing that too!
My favorite thing about Sabbath is resting. I don’t understand why anyone thinks that is a burden. =) It is such a PLEASURE!
At this time we don’t have a favorite teacher, but in the past we have enjoyed Rico Cortes, Test Everything, Zach Bauer and others.
Please share with us! I am so excited to hear all the responses! Make it as long as you want!
