“God wasn’t tired after He created the world. Just the opposite! He was energized and stopped to absorb it all on the seventh day. The Lord’s vast universe became so magnanimous, magnificent, and exquisite — beyond humankind’s scope of understanding — and worthy of a day of honor. The Creator’s invitation that we stop with Him to enjoy living by resting and recreating ourselves is small compared to gift of life and beauty around us.”
This is an excerpt from my book, “Sabbath: A Gift of Time.” Available everywhere. Great gift for the holidays.
