Day of Preparation is here again

Remember the Sabbath to keep it holy.
Ex. 20:8

Yay, it's almost here!
The sun is getting low in the sky as we near the end of "the Day of Preparation."  It has been a warm, sunny winter day today as we have gone through our preparations for Sabbath.  I like the picture above of the sun setting over the hills.  It looks so peaceful like the beginning of Sabbath...beautiful. 
Each of us look forward the day of preparing because at its end, will begin a time when we will be together for rest and study, scripture, eating food and usually getting together with others.  It is a time that is separate from the other days of the week when we don’t plan to do “business” as usual and we all look forward to that.
Sabbath is a day each week that is intended to remind us of our return to the place that Abba created us to be in, the garden that was prepared for His creation to be forever.  Sabbath is a wonderful reminder and a sign, of the promise that one day we will return to a place of perfect, eternal rest where death will not follow.  It is a lesson in how we are to walk each day in a place of perfect rest (trust) in Abba, knowing His plan is always on time and always perfect for His purpose.  He’s a great teacher isn’t He!
Thank you Abba for your Sabbath that you have created for man…a gift that is a blessing for all time.
Exo. 16:23  And he said unto them, This is that which YHVH hath said, Tomorrow is the rest of the holy Sabbath unto YHVH: bake that which ye will bake today, and seethe that ye will seethe; and that which remains over lay up for you to be kept until the morning. 

Here is a pic of our Sabbath roast in the crock with potatoes and carrots.  I also made a pumpkin pie for desert and have a stew prepared for the Sabbath meal at our study.  No one should be hungryJ 

Thank you Abba, for this day and all you have provided.


May your Sabbath be filled with peace and good company!
