Sabbath Moments


Colleen at Thoughts on Grace http://colleenspiro.blogspot.com/  hosts a weekly meme called Sabbath Moments. Sabbath Moments can be planned or may just come upon us. It is taking time to just be and rest in the Lord and reminds us of God's love and presence in our lives. Thinking about these moments on Saturday prepares my heart for Sunday, the Lord's day.

This week was filled with moments of grace. From meditating on the birth of our Savior to watching the joy on Michaela's face as she opened her presents. There was time spent with family, we all gather at my parents house on Christmas morning for brunch, and quiet time, also. Despite a stomach bug that ran through our house it was a wonderful grace-filled week. Randy, Michaela and I all watched a Disney Movie together on the couch one night. It was wonderful! Just the three of us, snuggling, and watching , "Tinkerbell and the Lost Treasure". It wasn't the movie that got to me [though I did enjoy it], it was simply sitting there with the two of them, with our arms around Michaela. With my other hand I was holding hers. There is something so holy about holding a little hand, I can't explain it. It never fails to fill my heart with wonder and joy :)

I hope everyone had a great week and may God pour His graces upon all this year.

  4. Bernie,
    Isn't it nice? I love times like that! We are feeling better with the exception of my daughter who caught a bad cold after the stomach bug. She is 6 years old and they seem to catch everything when they are young. Luckily, it was school vacation this week. I hope you are enjoying your weekend :)
