Blessings of rest on this Sabbath evening . . .

The time of the harvest had been fulfilled!
The increased fertility of the soil from its lying fallow one year out of seven!

We all need rest but find little time to pursue it!

It seems beyond our grasp with the demands of our daily challenges, our cares and concerns to live in a world
beyond our existence!

An ancient tradition from long ago was given, that the land
may rest every seventh year, called a – Sabbatical Rest!
Like the weekly Sabbath set aside for all to rest – a
reminder of our dependence on God for all of our provisions!

The Book of Leviticus Chapter 25:4
The Book of Genesis Chapter 2:2-3
