I don't think I have seven people with blogs who haven't done this yet, so if you are inspired, go for it.



Sabbath is
Daddy cooking french toast and bacon for breakfast
Checkers and stories and battleships
Sabbath is simplifying life
roast chicken and french fries for lunch
watching Soccer Dog together
Sabbath is jammies all day
Breakfast for breakfast and dinner
Sabbath is cozy inside
while wind howls and hail smacks on windows
Sabbath is little girls doubling the number
of toys to give away from 5 to 10
all on her own
Sabbath is family
