Shabbat

As the sign in my young neighbor's car window says, "A smile works magic."
I smile as we welcome our Friday night to Saturday night Sabbath, a day of rest and peace.
Shabbat has a certain magic all its own.
Shabbat shalom to you all. . :-D

And again, Shabbat, Shalom to you, Dina! "Louis" always enjoys stopping by on Friday to see what variation you have on Shabbat, Shalom.

Peace and restful meditation to you, Dina.

i'm so glad you found some peace reading my blog today!

Dina said...

Glad to know you're here, Louis la Vache, at Erev Shabbat. OK then, I will try to come up with new ways of illustrating it. Merci. Shabbat shalom to you aussi.

Thanks Kay. How is it that the Sabbath day is over before you know it. It's like... you never have enough time for all the nothing you want to do.

M.Kiwi, your post on the renewed synagogue of Hania is fascinating and your links to the history have me reading with interest. Thank you!!

Bonjour, Dina - and again, Shabbat, Shalom!

Regarding your question about the earthquake - "Louis" et Mme. la Vache felt it, but there was no damage at their condo complex, which is built on a pretty substantial rock formation underground. "Louis" et Mme. la Vache haven't heard of any noteworthy damage as of 06:46 this morning. "Louis" et Mme la Vache thank you for your concern!

"Louis" again thanks you for your concern!

Regarding l'aube vs. l'aurore - both words are correct, but now that you ask, peut ĂȘtre l'aurore is the better choice. L'aube also means 'the paddle.'

One day a week we may rest as the wise Lord says. We may, not must as many religious people think, and consequently do nothing, but bore themselves to death.

Indeed it does, Dina. God bless your holy day.

Such a pretty bumper sticker, and a great sentiment. I'm glad that you translated though - I wouldn't have had a clue!! ;-)

I got a little behind on my reader due to some things happening unexpectedly this weekend, so I missed this post and the opportunity to return you a wish of Shabbat Shalom. I hope it was lovely for you. Although I am not Jewish, I am what may somewhat be described as a "Christian Jew," and I also "keep" Sabbath Friday sundown to Saturday sundown. There is nothing more restful, peaceful or rejuvenating in life. This Sabbath we spent most of the time in the mountains with our church, at one with Creation. Extra special.
