Years ago, I went to a retreat where a woman talked to us about keeping the sabbath.  Her ideas came back to me today when I read what Ruth wrote about Sundays.  I am wondering if I can reclaim Sundays this year and really learn to celebrate the sabbath. 

The snow isn’t melting – the ice on our road makes leaving home a undesireable option.  Yet, tomorrow will come and I will need to open the door and head back to work.  So tonight, I am making plans that will distract me.  Plans for reading.  Plans for writing.  Plans for creative diversions.  It helps.
