We are holiness.
We are blessed.
We are filled and sustained by gifts imparted and ingrained.
On Shabbat is the Sabbath day, the Day of Rest, and is observed from Friday night through Saturday night. Is set aside from the rest of the week both in honor of the fact that God rested on the seventh day after creating the world. On Shabbat, many Jews observe prohibitions from various activities designated as work. Shabbat is traditionally observed with festive meals, wine, challah, prayers, the reading and studying of Torah, conjugal relations, family time, and time with friends. we rest with intention.
We breathe in the Divine Spirit and release the tumult of the week gone by.
We take a few moments to simply be present.
We rediscover our connection to our Creator.
In that quiet moment of truth so profound, alone with our Source, we see our own reflections and find that we have also found ourselves.
Fervent thanks to Stacey Zisook Robinson for gifting me with the inspiration for this Shabbat meditation.
