That blessed time draws near, friends. How beautiful is that time with Him. I look forward to it. A day with no distractions. Time to let go of cares, work, and the things that occupy my mind during the week.
I have time to sit on my porch, listen to music, read, pray, watch the birds and butterflies, draw, paint, write poetry, and most of all, to hear His voice. Ah, that still, small voice within my heart. It can get crowded out by the hullabaloo of life if I don't spend time with Him.
I'm thankful for this blessed day. It's a great and wonderful gift, and I treasure it.
Here's a song for your Shabbat meditation: Psalm 23 by Jeff Majors. It is so lovely, Gail-Friends. It begins with a shofar blast (so beautiful), then a harp solo. I hope you enjoy the song and the images, too.
I memorized this psalm as a nine-year-old girl and it has stuck with me. When I wake during the night, I immediately begin quoting this passage in my mind. I usually go right back to sleep. If not, I pray for whoever Hashem brings to mind.
Shabbat shalom, dear Gail-Friends, and may your Sabbath rest be sweet.
