Blessed are You, YHWH our Elohim, King of the universe, who rested on the seventh day, and blessed it. The word ‘shabbat’ means to rest, to cease from labor, and I CHOOSE to rest this day, this day that You have sanctified and set apart. I CHOOSE to honor You, Your Torah, and praise the works of Your hands. I thank You, ABBA, for this opportunity to joyfully be obedient to Your Torah! I delight in You, my Father, and Your instructions are never grievous or heavy!
