A QUOTE FOR THINKING ABOUT WHAT MATTERS
“Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days you shall labor, and do all your work, but the seventh day is a Sabbath to the LORD your God. On it you shall not do any work, you, or your son, or your daughter, your male servant, or your female servant, or your livestock, or the sojourner who is within your gates…
I am do not quote the bible often, but thought this right for a Shabbat message.
A STAYING STRONG TIP
No matter what your beliefs about a higher power, a day devoted to a simpler life is strengthening. To me that means thinking about what matters, , not spending money, not working on any commercial ventures, not using my beloved computer, turning off the cell phone, connecting with friends, nature, my G-d.
Create your own version, your life will improve. Spend one day a week without traveling; turning on the tv, radio, or computer. Doing so practices kindness for our planet. Try it you might like it.
If you find relaxing and enjoying such a day difficult, try improving your self-soothing skills. My eBook, Self-soothing To Create Calm in Your Life will help you do both. It is on sale not for $3.06. Buy it now. It will do you more good than a latte and costs less.
Thank you for all you do
Remember to share all you find of value on the internet. All who post crave recognition. A like says “Thank You.” Comments say you have read and thought about the post. Sharing is a gift to three people: the blogger, the people you share with, and you for your kindness blesses you.
Stay strong, it takes some effort for life can be a painful struggle.
Post Inspiration: This post was not inspired by the WordPress Daily Prompt: Construct but by the repeated the approach of Shabbat. However, peace something you can construct for yourself and others. .
