Shabbat Oasis Shabbat is the watering place in the dessert of our lives. We stop to connect with community and loved ones, refill, recharge, and get back in the fight with increased vigor and stamina. Reply

INSPIRING ! That was wonderful! He is so enthusiastic, you can read it on his face!
After I read Herman Wouk's "This is My G-d", I decided to keep Shabbos, and it became easy to do pretty quickly, and very rewarding.
I saw a shift in my priorities and from what I gained out of what I was doing and not doing.
THANKS. Reply

every minute Yes, Shabbat gives us an island in time for holiness. Is our daily Modeh Ani secondary to Shabbat ? You can take 30 seconds every day and think / meditate on G-d's presence/closeness and Awe/distance or love and fear of Him. Every second of the entity of time should be ingrained with holiness.

This is not to diminish the mitzvot of Shabbos. It is to elevate the other times. Reply
