Sabbath Me …

Bring me out of the house of bondage today,
O God, into the house of freedom.
Hear my thanks for the work of my hands,
and heart and mind.
Release me from the guilt I carry at not
doing enough and never being done. Bring me into the grace of completeness in incompleteness.
Sabbath me, from time to time, even on the job.
In the name of the true God.

– Donna Schaper, author of Sabbath Keeping.
(excerpt from “Celebrate Labor Day”, Liguori Publications.)
