Summer Sabbath time; the pause that refreshes

Morning: Psalm 102; I Samuel 9:1-14; Acts 7:17-29
Evening: Psalm 107:1-32; Luke 22:31-38

Becoming human – becoming ourselves – is demanding work, full of trials.  We can easily betray ourselves, and others.  But, paradoxically, if we are ready to learn from hardships, they can bring new wisdom and lead us back to ourselves.  

Friends, I would betray myself, and you, if I did not take time to rest and renew my spirit.  The summer season invites us all into rest and restoration, so I will accept summer’s invitation and let go of a few things during July and August.  “Reawakening” will pause now until September. May your summer days be blessed.
