For six days, work is to be done, but the seventh day shall be your holy day, a day of sabbath rest to the Lord.
Exodus 35:2 NIV
40 Things to Give Up for a Better Life
#21 Going Constantly
I have started keeping a “Sabbath.” Sundays have become a day of rest. There is only one rule. No work. I don’t do the dishes, laundry, or write,no work of any kind. It’s been lovely. I look forward to Sundays with excitement. What will I choose to do? Read? Knit? Draw? Take a walk? Watch YouTube? It has become a life-giving routine. I rest from the work of the week and find on Sunday evenings that I am recharged and ready to start the new week.
I challenge you to try it out. See if you don’t fall in love with the Sabbath too.
