keeping Sabbath


2 Chronicles 7:14

If my people which are called by name, 

shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face

and turn from their wicked ways,

then will I hear from heaven 

and will forgive their sin

and will heal their land. 

Toward the end of summer

on our rather tiny sort-of an island.

The evenings find us adding an extra blanket

and the mornings are chill enough for a sweater now,

as we sip our tea.

This morning it is rainy and grey,

the wind is blowing the bushes along the trail about

and the dune grasses are bending in the breeze.

The beach roses have turned from white and pink petals to orange hips

the bayberry and bittersweet are beginning to break forth.

Next week will be hot again but the school buses will be running already

and the heat will be but a whisper of a summer past.
