So you’re probably wondering why I haven’t written in a week. Well, I’ve had the crud, and so this week has been equal parts rough, exhausting and now…joyful that I am finally on the mend. But I don’t really have time to write anything profound or interesting this morning either. My coffee has eggnog in it. There is snow on the ground. And I’m planning to make cranberry orange muffins for breakfast for my family.
Happy Sabbath everyone. Rest and enjoy it well! More on these thoughts and verses later.
“You are to speak to the people of Israel and say, ‘Above all you shall keep my Sabbaths, for this is a sign between me and you throughout your generations, that you may know that I, the LORD, sanctify you. You shall keep the Sabbath, because it is holy for you. Everyone who profanes it shall be put to death. Whoever does any work on it, that soul shall be cut off from among his people. Six days shall work be done, but the seventh day is a Sabbath of solemn rest, holy to the LORD. Whoever does any work on the Sabbath day shall be put to death. Therefore the people of Israel shall keep the Sabbath, observing the Sabbath throughout their generations, as a covenant forever. It is a sign forever between me and the people of Israel that in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, and on the seventh day he rested and was refreshed.’
And he gave to Moses, when he had finished speaking with him on Mount Sinai, the two tablets of the testimony, tablets of stone, written with the finger of God.’’
