“Sabbatical or a sabbatical (from Latin sabbaticus, from Greek sabbatikos, from Hebrew shabbat, i.e., Sabbath, literally a "ceasing") is a rest from work, or a break, often lasting from two months to a year. The concept of sabbatical has a source in shmita, described several places in the Bible (Leviticus 25, for example, where there is a commandment to desist from working the fields in the seventh year). In the strict sense, therefore, a sabbatical lasts a year.” (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sabbatical)
“And He said to them, “Come aside by yourselves to a deserted place and rest a while.” For there were many coming and going, and they did not even have time to eat.” Mark 6:31 (NKJV)
After several months of a “sabbatical” from blogging, I am officially back! At least I am trying to get back to the “swing” of things.
The sabbatical was greatly needed and appreciated. I desperately needed the time to prepare for gastric bypass surgery in June as well as to rest and heal after surgery.
