Keeping the Sabbath #3

1. A Song
Make Us Ready by Harvest Bashta.  Found her courtesy of Noise Trade.  Thankyouverymuch.

2. A Verse
Sorry, it’s actually more than a verse…I kept trying to pick one line that stood out above the rest in this reading, but I couldn’t.  So you get the whole thing. I heart Isaiah.

“The spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me, because the LORD has anointed me; he has sent me to bring glad tidings to the poor, to heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives and release to the prisoners, to announce a year of favor from the LORD and a day of vindication by our God.
I rejoice heartily in the LORD, in my God is the joy of my soul; for he has clothed me with a robe of salvation and wrapped me in a mantle of justice, like a bridegroom adorned with a diadem, like a bride bedecked with her jewels. As the earth brings forth its plants, and a garden makes its growth spring up, so will the Lord GOD make justice and praise spring up before all the nations.” ~Isaiah 61: 1-2a, 10-11

3. A Quote
 “We must be living witnesses of the beauty and grandeur of Christianity.  To make truth visible in one’s own person, to render truth pleasing, offering oneself as a significant and, if possible, heroic example.” ~St. Gianna Beretta Molla

 Latte + Scripture = A Nice Sunday Afternoon

5. A Blessing
My church family comes through.  They are so supportive, and it is so nice to be taken care of, provided for, prayed over.  All I have to do is ask, and our needs are met for programs at church.  It is so great, and such a blessing that I am very, very thankful for.

6. An Intention
I'll be praying in a special way for highschoolers and college students who are preparing for or taking finals this week and next.  I don't miss those times.
On that note, congrats to my dear friends L & K who have officially finished their masters' programs! Yay, ladies!

7. A Challenge
This week, I am going to continue a recently started run of praying a scriptural Rosary every day.  Quiet time, meditating on snippets of the life of Christ is a very good thing for me to be doing right now.
