I praise you for your time and timing,
your rhythms and cycles,
ebbs and flows,
and I welcome your shabbat,
your rest today at the end of this week.
Thank you for your heartbeat
pulsing through me,
though my week,
for your presence with me,
your Spirit’s counsel, guidance, and love
hovering over me,
disciplining, leading, moving me
forward into greater plains of your freedom and grace.
I praise you for this day to pause,
to be still
and remember, reflect
on your beauty, glory, and holiness.
You are so good,
active, invisible, powerful, and mighty,
buoying me and my loved ones up in your love.
I love you and will quiet my soul,
satisfied as a weaned baby in your arms.
I bless you Lord.
