I've been reading the "Secret of the Sabbath" (By: Richard M. Eyre), and it's definitely one of my new favorite books. It is actually one half of a two-volume book that is bound together. The other half is "What Manner of Man". As I mentioned in an earlier post, growing up the Sabbath day was always a sacred day for my family. I must admit that as a mom and wife, I have not always maintained a specific routine to help my family keep the Sabbath holy. I love the way this book helps to correlate the things that we are taught in the scriptures in a way that makes it easy to apply it to my life. Here are some great excerpts that I wanted to share with you all. Let me know what you do to help your family keep the Sabbath the sacred day that our Heavenly Father intended it to be.
" Keeping the Sabbath is far more than going to church and avoiding temporal work. It is a skill and an art that can actually make the other nine commandments easier. Living every seventh day as God intends means far more than resting. It means re-creating in a way that makes the other six days full and fair and meaningful."
