Keeping Sabbath


He restoreth my soul

Psalm 23:3

My favorite part of weekend mornings 

is being able to drink my coffee or tea slowly.

My husband is not a coffee drinker and doesn't understand

why I can't just gulp down a cup before I leave for work

and be done with it.

Morning coffee is a bit like art with children

it's process not project. 

This morning as sip I can see ribbons of colour out the window

white fog lifting off of 

the greens of the grassy park across the street,

 beige in the dune grasses waving in the breeze,

beautiful silvery blue of the Atlantic ocean,

calm as glass this morning,

and a pastel, orangey, pink  sun rising up out of it. 

All of it moving to it's own beat of life,

and all of it, all of it,

moving to the rhythm of the earth and to the universe.

So I sit at my window...

sipping my coffee slow.

He restoreth my soul. 


  1. A beautiful Sabbath invitation ... I'm grateful to have reconnected online with you this weekend!

  2. I so relate to this post! The first cup of coffee, sipped slowly while embracing the beginning of the day is a big deal to me as well.

  3. Beautiful thoughts. I love coffee and serenity!

  4. Love your reflective words. Sounds such a calming morning. I love those kind. :)

    Have a great blessed week. :)

Deep peace of the running wave to you.
Deep peace of the flowing air to you.
Deep peace of the quiet earth to you.
Deep peace of the shining stars to you.
Deep peace of the gentle night to you.
Moon and stars pour their healing light on you
