Colleen's blog has a wonderful meme where we 'cease' and let God be to experience sabbath moments. There were a few times this week where I was able to just 'cease' and take in the moments the Holy Spirit was pouring forth in my life. They are as follows:
1) There were a few times where I was able to just read, grade and plan for next year's curriculum. Just being able to bask in the quietness and have time for reading and grading is a blessing to me.
2) Spending time with my four year old reading about baby animals. There is a delightful collection of children's books we have on baby animals.
3) The daily moments when my children and I read a passage from the Bible and discuss it. In one of the devotions it said, "The time we spend with God is far more precious to him than the things we do for him." Any thoughts on this statement? I thought it was interesting but do not know if it is so true - especially for busy mothers! I guess it can depend on what 'season of life' we are currently living in.
