Sabbath:  The Practice of Drawing Breath

As we head into the summer months and you begin to schedule your time, here is a suggestion. 

Schedule these things: Time to take a walk with your dog, your guide to unnoticed marvels and let him set the pace. Teach your child to say no to electronics at least for a little while Get a lap dog or a cat  – and take a nap together.

These suggestions come from Kate Huey who was inspired by Barbara Taylor Brown’s suggestion in “An Altar in the World” that we all cultivate the spiritual practice of saying no. This summer say no to overscheduling, overplanning, and overdoing in your life.  Rest and renew.
