The difference between ordinary and extraordinary is a little bit of "extra". Sabbath should have a little bit of "extra" in it. Maybe that's a date night, or your favourite run, or hanging out with your favorite friend. When you keep a sabbath, consider doing something that fits these criteria:
- It brings you life and puts you at ease
- It creates avenues for you to worship Jesus
- It connects you to other people (sabbath is not a lonely experience, its a communal one)
Today my brother and I kept sabbath by climbing at Tollhouse Rock. It continues to be a great place to keep sabbath.
It always feels good to knock out 4 pitches before lunch only an hour away from Fresno.
Jameson's a good climber -- strong, fluid, safe, and confident.
We loved watching the clouds roll-in and roll away. Half way up the climb the clouds engulfed us and decided to stay.
It's always fun to climb in a cloud....it feels like reading a good mystery.
Summit shot! We made it!
At the top, we enjoyed watching the clouds roll past us, carried by a gentle cool breeze.
Sabbath is about connecting with God, enjoying God, and enjoying the fellowship that God provides.
Climb on and keep sabbathing!
