MOLESKINE:  Last week I was humbled and honored when asked to help one of our own with “opening up” a cabin that has been in his family for some time now. I hadn’t ever done anything like that before and it’s been a long time since I’ve been apart from my Mrs…..so it was with a servant heart I agreed to go.

We began the trip with my counterpart giving me a book titled Sabbath, by Wayne Muller.  Yes, there were things to do on this short trip and he wanted to make sure we also rested. TClaps to the HIM that I went with.  He reminded me that while accelerating is good, we all need to rest, to regenerate to continue to accelerate.

Sabbath:  a day of religious observance and abstinence from work.

It’s not just a day of rest for individuals.  It may be, or it may be an hour here an hour there.  At its core Sabbath is meant to be a day of rest which is synchronized with the rest of society.  It’s not about you. It’s about us!  Sabbath is about connecting with nature, with one another and through that time we can, and often do find rest.

YHC has been out in our small communities and has seen time and again couples where one is talking and the other is face deep in his/her smart phone. Heartbreaking!!  In 100 years do you think the email you’re sending will be held up as a triumph or quoted?  Heck, in 100 days will it?   UNPLUG!  You may find that that time spent unplugged feels like the most beautiful solution to this urgent problem in our communities, or our society right now.  

So, talk it over with your best lady and schedule a Sabbath day or a Sabbath night.  You will likely find those lost things.  Those things you have forgotten; the twinkle in her eyes, the peace around them, the ease of conversation, something new about her that you never knew (or had forgotten).

If you are not present to the people that you’re with, and you’re not really focused on any one thing (cause your checking scores – or email – or what’s trending – or weather – or…….)

Then what are your actions saying is important?

Aye!
