celebrate the Sabbath...

The meaning of the Sabbath is

to celebrate time rather than space.

Six days a week we live

under the tyranny of things of space;

on the Sabbath we try to become attuned

to holiness in time.

It is a day on which we are called upon

to share in what is eternal in time,

to turn from the results of creation

to the mystery of creation;

from the world of creation

to the creation of the world.

~Abraham Heschel


  1. I didn't realise that this picture is similar to the previous post entry. At first I thought this is a peaceful sunset and not a picture of forest fire or such. I guess I've been undermining the power of colour.

  2. ah, jessica, you are quite observant! this is the same photo as the last one on my previous post but done in b&w. i noticed that much of the detail of the sun's outline was lost by the fiery colors, so i thought i would try capturing it in b&w. i love how it turned out. simple. elegant in its starkness.

    i think i sense a spiritual lesson that can be gleaned from this as well... how the externals can distract us/blind us to the simplicity of our faith... hmm. perhaps i may post on this... to be continued!! :)


I'm so glad you've stopped by! I love hearing from you and can't wait to read your comments! Let me know what's on your mind and your heart today...
