Shalom Y'all

Friday night brings the Shabbat. From sundown Friday night to sundown Saturday night, scripture asks us to give a day to God - to turn away from our own paths and turn to His.  In college, I fell in love with the idea of a family honoring God every week at the dinner table.  I thought that this would become the built-in time and place for my future family to talk about God.

Shabbat has truly become a rhythm in the life of my family.  As we grow and develop as a family unit, our needs change, but the day of rest comes.  Some weeks we are formal, some weeks we are informal. This week was very informal, but no matter what we do, Shabbat arrives.

With that, Shabbat shalom, friends!
