Remember the Sabbath day by keeping it...

The only thing typical about this Sunday morning 
was that we were rushing to get to church on time
  even tho' we woke at 4:00 AM to do so!

Walking from the car to church this morning

Once we were seated

our eyes were fixated on the 
beauty-full  ...

stained glass window.
 as if to remind us that

"This moment ...

and the next 

and all the ones after that 

are ...



 I took off my shoes for a bit.

From what God was revealing right before our eyes, it seemed as if
even the ground we were on 
because He was there.

1 The heavens declare the glory of God;
   the skies proclaim the work of his hands. 2 Day after day they pour forth speech;
   night after night they reveal knowledge. 3 They have no speech, they use no words;
   no sound is heard from them. 4 Yet their voice goes out into all the earth,
   their words to the ends of the world.
In the heavens God has pitched a tent for the sun.
 5 It is like a bridegroom coming out of his chamber,
   like a champion rejoicing to run his course. 6 It rises at one end of the heavens
   and makes its circuit to the other;
   nothing is deprived of its warmth.

Psalm 19:1-6

coffee time


As I suspected, 
we didn't want the sermon to end.
it seems that what God taught me 
early this morning
at the edge of the vast expanse where the ocean meets the sky 
didn't even really hit home 
we were heading home.
