Keeping Sabbath


~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~



t
Jesus entered the temple area and proceeded to drive out those who were selling things,

saying to them, "It is written, My house shall be a house of prayer,

but you have made it a den of thieves."



I cannot help but think of this verse on Black Friday.

I'm all for saving money when I can...

but first let's remember why we're here.

  1. Indeed I said this on my blog today. This is the only day of the year that we spend being thankful for what we have, then go out madly buying stuff!

  2. Such a lovely, peaceful looking skyline in comparison to our gray one that we've been having. I could so take a walk there this morning with a cup of coffee and reflections. :)

  3. I'm not going to get this quote exactly right, but I saw in the newspaper yesterday a comedian said Thanksgiving is the only holiday where we give thanks for everything we have one day, then go out and buy more stuff the next. Jesus did caution against materialism. Thanks for the reminder.

  4. I added my Black Friday link. I often wonder what people are thinking but then I realize I probably don't need to think that way.

  5. Totally agree!! I think for many Black Friday has become more about an event they participate in rather than about the shopping itself, and I guess if it's something fun they do with family and friends, then go for it. ;-) But it doesn't interest me.

  6. I know what you mean about Black Friday. I always stay home that day and away from the crowds.

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
