An Autumn Sabbath

Rick and I typically like to observe the Sabbath once a week as a gift from God.  A day to Stop, Rest, Delight and Contemplate. Last Saturday we spent it in the heart of Brooklyn, Grand Army Plaza.

It was a beautiful Saturday morning.  The sun was shining, it wasn't too hot or too cold.  The temperature was just perfect.  Perfect for a farmers market, a stroll in Prospect Park and a walk up 7th Ave. (in Park Slope).

Karis had yet to have her first train (subway) ride so we decided that what better day than today.  We had been worried that she would be afraid of the loud train and strange surroundings but quite the opposite happened.  She loved every minute!  And even slept on the train ride back!

We went to the farmers market in Grand Army Plaza and enjoyed the sights, the sounds and the wonderful smells.  We enjoyed a morning cinnamon roll and fresh cup of apple cider, yum!
Delicious Veggies and such!
All kinds of root vegetables.

Beautiful chili peppers!
We also had the opportunity to sit and browse through a small bookstore on 7th Ave.  This was my view...
Sitting on a couch in the back of the bookstore... My view!
I hope and pray that you all have a chance to experience a sabbath where you can stop the hurried life we live, rest in God's love, Delight in what God has given us, and contemplate what He is doing in your life today!

Here is a video where Pastor Pete Scazzero shares on Sabbath for the New Life Fellowship 2010 Lenten Initiative:

  1. That has GOT to be my favorite picture of Karis so far. She really looks so enthralled. SoCUTE. SoCUTE. ;) I sadly have not done Sabbath since lent. :( For reasons too many to get into in a blog comment. But thank you for the reminder, Rosie.

  2. Thanks Cate! I love that pic too! :)
