Sabbath Twenty Ten

Every year, our family gets together with some dear friends who live all over the country to visit, eat, laugh, and reflect on all the happenings of the previous year. It's an intentional thoughtful group, one that remembers joys and sorrows from the past years' visits and gently follows up each summer.


This year we went to a lake house in Georgia to play ping pong...

...blow bubbles...
...catch and study bugs...


and sing out loud.

We call the week Sabbath and look forward to it every year.

Rob Bell writes about Sabbath in a book I'm reading and your weekend fits in beautifully with the concept he expresses about it. I'll have to share this book with you and iHusband when I'm done. After all, it's entitled Velvet Elvis and a woman's got to share the wisdom from a book with that title, right?
