On My Nightstand - Sacred Sabbath by Marja Meijers







My blogging friend, Marja Meijers, is writing a series on The Ten Commandments. Since I've been reading her blog for a couple of years now, I knew this would not be a legalistic type book. She always brings a New Testament viewpoint to Old Testament truth.

I can depend on Marja to challenge my thinking. Sacred Sabbath is not a book you zip through in a day, but one to savor and enjoy. She makes some interesting points on time management that apply to everyone in this frenetic, plugged in society. Taking a day to pursue God's interests instead of our own actually multiplies what we accomplish in the other 6 days.

I hope you'll take a few minutes to visit Marja's blog and pick up a copy of her book.

Writers and Readers: Have you ever wondered if you're too busy? How do you cut back when there's so much to do?

I will check out Maria's blog!

I've felt overwhelmed and too busy lately. I've taken a blog break and limited my online time. Amazing how much more I've been getting done.

Hi Loree -

Since I signed my contract with Helping Hands Press, I've been on the Internet almost non-stop. I love it, but it is challenging.

Enjoy your blog break. You might want to stop by here on Monday and enter the Blog Tour contest. :)

Blessings,
Susan

Will hop over and say hello to Marja. I need to pick this book up. I've been meaning to have her back on my blog too. Glad you reminded me about her new book!

Blessings,
Karen

Susan, thank you for mentioning this book (my first) on your blog. I was really surprised to see it pop up!

Guess what, I recently started reading it again, because I felt so busy and sometimes even overwhelmed with all the work I am doing. It really spoke to me again :)

Blessings, have a great weekend, and soooo looking forward to your book promotion blog tour!

Hi Marja -

Thanks for stopping by to comment. I meant to email you, but time got away from me, which totally illustrates your point. LOL!

Blessings,
Susan :)

I can't let anything pile up or I get anxious. So I break up my day into manageable bits: write, break, teach, break, write, go to rehearsal, etc.

This book sounds intriguing, Susan, thank you for mentioning it. I follow Marja's blog and leave comments on her posts periodically. I appreciate learning more about her works.

Blessings...

Hi Dena - I don't like getting behind either. To-do lists help me keep somewhat organized.

Hi Janette - Yes, Marja's blog is excellent. Lot of food for thought.

I confess I've been AWOL on a lot of blogs lately. Launching a book is wonderful but incredibly time consuming. I'll be back!

Blessings,
Susan :)
