Fall is a metaphor for our journey to London. One day a gentle breeze blows cool through the open window signaling a sweater is prudent for a walk. The next day, sun blazes high overhead and sweat drips down the middle of my back.

Just when you think it’s time to take a giant leap forward, God says, “No, just one little baby step.”

Sabbath is a reminder that even the leaves don’t blush and drop without God knowing about it. He is Lord of your seasons.

Two steps forward and one step back is the dance of transition. Why expect anything else?

Whether slipping into sandals or pulling on boots, may you know God is present in your rest this weekend.

Happy Sabbath Friends!
