Lately, there’s been a lot of focus on the Sabbath Day and what it means to me. Something Elder Ballard said is Regional Conference today struck me and got me thinking about what I am or am not doing to take advantage of the gift God gave me each week, of a Sunday, a day to rest from my labors (and focus a bit more on his).
I think we are woefully underutilizing the power available to us in the Sabbath day and in the living ordinance of the Sacrament.
– Elder M. Russell Ballard, Apostle, Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints
The song “The Day Dawn is Breaking” has been on my mind a lot. This morning, in fact, I just couldn’t get the opening lines out of my head:
of peace and rest.
Bright be thy dawn;
from East to West…”
I love the Sabbath Day. I know that it is a wonderful blessing in my life to change gears and slow down a bit. Though Elder Ballard’s words make me wonder what I am missing out on. I woner what a little change of focus might do.
