seeking Sabbath

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

 During the cooler months when I come home in the early evening

I can see my house as I drive over the causeway onto this rather tiny sort-of an island.

The sun is setting over the Atlantic and it's majestic light

reflects in the windows of my living room.

When I get inside I light a scented candle

set out to  watch the gloaming

and the evening settling in.


let your light so shine before men

that they may see your good works

and glorify your father, which is in heaven.

We have a very rainy Sat here too in eastern NY but I'm cozy with my fuzzy slipper socks, a steaming mug of maple coffee and my Apple Cinnamon Candle.

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
