I feel that the Sabbath looks different for each of us. I also think that it means something different for each of us. Some spend them morning and evening at a church, some watch church on TV from home, and some make their own church with worship and rest in their own way.
For me, the Sabbath is a day of rest. A day where I refresh so that throughout the week I can refresh those that I love and care about. So my ideal day is one that is free of cleaning schedules and appointments. I start my day with God and reconnect with Him throughout the day. It is a day spent outdoors and in awe of the beauty that He created for each of us. This refreshes me.
I think it is very important to fellowship with other believers, but I also believe that this can be done in many different ways and does not have to be done on the Sabbath. God made a day of rest because He knew we needed to REST. For me, in this season, getting 4 people up and ready, fed, and out the door to fight traffic and get a good seat all by 9am, then, being the introvert that I am, peopling ALOT is stressful and overwhelming. Not in the least bit, rest. So I use my Sabbath as a way to refresh myself and reconnect with God and my family. And I use the other days of the week to fellowship with other believers. But the Sabbath is for me and God, and then my family.
Make sure that you find you Sabbath. Spend the day with God in a way that refreshes you, so that when the day is over you are ready to start your week with the heart, joy, and peace of God. Whatever that may look like for you!

About The Quiet Homemaker
Here at The Quiet Homemaker I aspire to live a peaceful, quiet life as Paul urged the Thessalonians. God has blessed me with an amazing husband and three wonderful boys. He entrusted them into my care and I want to please Him by caring for them in a way that brings Him glory. I want to show them a quiet and peaceful life, where they work with their hands and tend to their own affairs and then reap the rewards of a job well done. The best way to show them this is through my example. Read More…
