This week I am away for several days of retreat in one of my favorite places on earth. Meanwhile people continue to read the book and share their thoughts and reactions, which is so gratifying. Thank you!
Here’s a photo of my friend Aaron engaged in one of his favorite Sabbath activities. (Send me yours! Win stuff! Details here.)
Tennis? Yes indeed. One of my happy discoveries over our year of Sabbath-keeping was the book of Isaiah, which encourages us to keep the Sabbath as a “delight.” Our Sabbaths included a wide range of delightful things: hiking, reading, picnics, baking, beer brewing… and a lot more.
How wonderful to have a day on which our heart’s delights are ‘mandated’!
What are those activities that delight you? Share your favorites in the comments.
And yes, this is another scheduled post. I am still away on retreat… and if you catch me around here, please chase me off! 🙂
