Sabbath Spotting

I was encouraged last week to find more moments for Sabbath.  This came from a trusted friend who really gets the spiritual life.

In turn, my reading of Scripture would improve, or so I'm trying to believe.

Turns out the faster our pace of life, the more difficult contemplation becomes. Maybe you are better at Sabbath spotting than I am.

Here (see photo to the left)was yesterday's moment of rest, found just after a nice dinner at a nearby Italian restaurant.  This little fella was having dinner for himself in a small tree just five feet from my car.  

When was the last time that you took time to simply "be" with God? What did you learn as a result of this short or long Sabbath?
