Simply Sabbath

What a wonderful week . . . it was crazy fast but full of blessings. What I consider a blessing may be looked on by others as a pothole in the road of life.  But there is always a sunny side to look at things. Just look at this weather we had . . . 

We could whine and whinge and carry on about the weather (of course, we didn't, ha, ha) but when we woke this morning and all the snow was gone and the thermometer was well above freezing we doubly appreciated the change!

So now we are back to normal winter weather for our little island and happy for it.

This morning when I was asked if there was anything 'fun' for breakfast I figured I better shift gears and do something about that . . .

Why is it that I am so surprised that my scones turn out so heavenly?  I don't make them often but am always surprised when they turn out so well.  This is what is left of the eleven that came out of the oven.

Today, being Sabbath and all, I wish you a peaceful day.  May your hearts rest easy in the great Maker of the Sabbath.

Lately I have been thinking of the Sermon on the Mount and what has been my response to those words so I am reading that again.

"Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven."  Matthew 5:3

"That man is perfect in faith who can come to God in the utter dearth of his feelings and desires, without a glow or an inspiration, with the weight of low thoughts, failures, neglects, and wandering forgetfulness, and say to Him, 'Thou art my Refuge'.  - George MacDonald


  1. It never has to snow to make my day. I don't see frozen water pipes as a blessing... except we were fortunate that nothing was broken and I was able to heat things up until we got our water back to normal.

    Now those scones... they were wonderful... and fun! A welcome change of pace.
