Sabbath in our daily lives

If only we could find a way
to enjoy sabbath in our daily lives
how our walk would be different
as we travel this fragile earth
caring for our neighbors
the ones around the world
the land, the sea, the skies
all of creation’s worth
If we stopped and rested
remembering the creator’s design
we to be stewards
to preserve what is left behind
Not consumers, to rape,
pillage, and war
loving the strangers
all who came before
Striving to care for the world
for all who follow our time
