Word of the Year



So, I thought my word for the year was going to be surrender, but it turns out that Sabbath is making itself known as THE word for 2011. I guess I will surrender to Sabbath - kill two birds with one stone.


Had this quote pop up in my inbox from Gratefulness.org as I was sitting down to type this post, "Stillness within one individual can affect society beyond measure." Bede Griffith
Let me hear you say, "NO ACCIDENTS!"

Not enough can be made of these books which are not only affirming the need of Sabbath, but giving me some instructions on how to go about it, as well as offering wonderful things to read while "busy" Sabbathing:

We've been reading The Book of Awakening here. LOVE IT.

Please, do not be "busy" sabbathing. Don't make me come there and force my laziness upon you. I'll do it, I swear.

I love both of your words for the year, and those books look very intriguing. My word for the year is Flow (my attempt to reduce stress).

Beautiful. We're on the same wavelength -- I have all of those books except for the one for couples. That might be a serious message right there...

I heard a line in a song the other day that made me think of you immediately. Four words said it all. The line was 'Turn the quiet up.'. I may make them my 'sentence of the year'. Perhaps you could go for a line too - 'surrender to the sabbath'. Kind of the same as 'turn the quiet up' isn't it? Hmm.

For a minute there, we had the same word. :-)

Looking forward to seeing how you Sabbath and how it changes your life. Love.

Living Buddah, Living Christ is on my night stand.

I am also cooking up my word for this year...
