God created heavens, oceans and earth –
with aardvarks, clown frogfish
and everyone’s adolescence.
God sent us an ancestor named “Laughter”
and a prophet like Jonah.
God so loved the world,
that God didn’t send a committee …

May your tight places be loosened,
your heavy burdens lightened,
and may healing come
through salt tears and occasional chuckles
so Sabbath may be a time you play
(even if you are more comfortable
with six-plus days of work)
because you let God show you how!
