The Exhale of Sabbath
EXHALING IS the letting go of the chaos and clutter in our lives. These distractions drain us and create a barrier between God and us. If we are cocreators, the exhale of sabbath gives us the space and refreshment for the inhale of creativity.
—Valerie K. Isenhower, Meditation on Both Sides of the Camera: A Spiritual Journey in Photography (Upper Room Books, 2012)

“The LORD is my shepherd, I shall not want.
He makes me lie down in green pastures;
he leads me beside still waters;
he restores my soul.”
—Psalm 23:1-3a (NRSV)
