Welcome to the Cafe…

sab-bath /ˈsabəTH/noun;  a day of rest.

Hi there, thanks for stopping by.  I started writing as a way to process my spiritual journey.  During that time, I was drawn to the idea of rest.  That’s when the title, “Sabbath Cafe,” came to me.  As sabbath is meant to be a time for rest and restoration, I hope this blog will bring peace and vitality to all who visit.

Sit back, relax and enjoy the view.

Your spiritual barista,
Michele

Podcast #106 My Experience in Replacing Anxiety with Peace

I started a simple 10 day program last year on learning to rest in God. A year later, I’m still working through the lessons. 😀 Decided to share some of my experiences here in podcast 6. Enjoy!

I’ve put together a simple Peace meditation scripture worksheet. You can download here: Peace meditation worksheet.

Podcast #105 How my anxiety affected my perspectives

logo-filtered-rnd-corners 1400x1400The title sounds really serious… but this podcast is really just about my latest silly, *facepalm* / “Homer Simpson” moment… I promise, it’ll make you feel much better about your day. 😉

Processing Through Regrets

What I find challenging about the feeling of regret is that I can’t change the past. What is done is done. I don’t know about you, but I have a bad habit of repeating these memories in my mind. Every time I remembered the situation, it stirred up the feelings of shame and disappointment. Recently, I’ve been learning a new way to respond to these feelings of regret. And it’s very simple – let go of the past and move forward. 🙂 Yep. It’s that simple… but simple doesn’t mean it’s easy. When a friend first said that to me, it was really hard for me to receive. The feeling of regret is usually accompanied by guilt, and I could not let go of the guilt for some reason.

Podcast #104 Working through creative blocks

logo-filtered-rnd-corners 1400x1400I’ve been pretty quiet on my blog these last few months. I blame it on taxes, birthdays and just life in general.  On top of that, I was stuck in a creative “quick sand.”  Here’s what I learned from working through my creative blocks.

 

My Anniversary Reflection

This year will be my fifteenth wedding anniversary.  Yep. That’s right. Fifteen years. It is hard for me to fathom the fact that I’ve been in a relationship or even a friendship with someone for this long. Unlike most couples, I was the one who had an issue with commitment when we got engaged.  It’s not that I didn’t love my husband, but the sheer enormity of a lifetime commitment simply blew my mind. My husband, Mr. J, had no such concerns. Even though we’ve only known each other for a short time, as an intuitive visionary, he can already see us together for the long haul. Our differences were quite obvious even back then.
