Seeking Sabbath


t

Micah
6:8

He has told you, O man, what is good;

and what does the Lord require of you

but to do justice, and to love kindness,

and to walk humbly with your God?

~ ~ ~

So...no fancy offering, no new clothes, no perfect house, no lovely family,

no expensive car, trimmed yard, no happy marriage, no great job...

compares to what God tells us is good:

doing justice, loving kindness, walking humbly with him.

It is only by falling to our knees that our hearts can truly be lifted. 




In the morning I go to the porch and I look out over the beauty that astounds me

and when I pray I ask God to show me the way 

to a pure heart, a loving heart, a humble heart,

  1. Amen!

    From your labels: "everything emptying into white"... what does that mean?

    1. It is from a song by the same title, by Cat Stevens. To me it is a spiritual reference.

Deep peace of the running wave to you.
Deep peace of the flowing air to you.
Deep peace of the quiet earth to you.
Deep peace of the shining stars to you.
Deep peace of the gentle night to you.
Moon and stars pour their healing light on you
