“Sabbath requires surrender. If we only stop when we are finished with all our work, we will never stop, because our work is never completely done. With every accomplishment there arises a new responsibility… Sabbath dissolves the artificial urgency of our days, because it liberates us from the need to be finished.”  — Wayne Muller

The Sabbath is set aside to take a complete break from the ordinary demands of life.  Regularly set a day aside to turn off your phone, email, and Facebook.  Turn off the TV, news, and internet.   Stop trying to complete what’s in your inbox or on your to do-list.  Take a day and let yourself get bored. This reconnects you with a slower rhythm and helps you find your own pace, again.  This re-centers you in yourself and in your own life.

Reflection:  How can you create a regular Sabbath time in your life?

Affirmation:  I take time to reconnect with my life by slowing down and by unplugging from all electronic devices.
