Spiritual Sabbaths

I have begun my preparations for this week’s Sabbath. I worked diligently throughout the week, so most jobs would already be done. I set up my baking projects for tomorrow by soaking flour and setting out ingredients. I put in the second to last load of laundry for the week. I have a pile of […]
