THE SABBATH

by EDMUND SANDERS
(SAVANNAH GA)

I WAS AT THE GAS STATION, AND I SPOKE TO A WOMAN, AND SHE SPOKE BACK. I ASKED HER IF SHE WAS COMING FROM CHURCH. SHE AFFIRMED AND ALSO INVITED ME TO COME JOIN NEXT WEEK. I SAID SURE, AND MY NEXT STATEMENT WAS THAT I WAS HAVING CAR TROUBLE AND THAT IF POSSIBLE I WOULD GIVE HER GAS MONEY IF SHE COULD COME AND GET ME AND MY FIANCE AND TAKE US.

SHE SAID THAT THE CHURCH HAD BUSES FOR THAT ON THE WEBSITE. MY NEXT QUESTION WAS DID SHE KNOW WHAT THE SABBATH DAY WAS, SHE MISHEARD ME AND ASKED, DID YOU SAY THE SEVENTH DAY, I SAID, "THAT'S NOT WHAT I SAID BUT THE SABBATH DAY IS THE SEVENTH DAY, BUT ACTUALLY I WAS JUST TRYING TO FIND OUT IF SHE KNEW WHAT THE SABBATH DAY WAS, AND SHE SAID NO.

RIGHT AFTER THAT SHE INVITED ME TO HER CHURCH AGAIN AND HURRIED AWAY WITH NO SIGN OF INTEREST. ITS THE FOURTH COMMANDMENT FROM GOD.

EXODUS 20; 8 Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy.

9 Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work:

10 But the seventh day is the sabbath of the LORD thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates:

11 For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the LORD blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.

The Sabbath
by: Art

My friend, I know what you mean. Maybe she just wanted to be cordial back to you, didn't have extra gas... You never know.

What were you doing at the gas station? Okay, I know you donot need a special reason, but think about, gas station and no car..lol

It is a bit forward asking for a ride before she offered. Maybe she had a flash back to a time when she didn't have a car? Then questioning about The Sabbath might have been a turn off, thinking you were a bit crazy, too eager, but it certainly didn't impress her.

You might have been thinking you all had something in common when she hurt your feelings by taking off and not offering a ride.

No ride with her, might have been a good thing for you and your wife. You just never know.

Anyway, don't let it bother you, take it with a grain of salt. Show how determined and appreciative you really are and call for a bus. Who knows,,,She just might wish she hadn't passed you up.

Now, you don got a little huffy with us, thinking we don't know when the Sabbath is. But that's why we are here.

Enjoy, keep sharing and sharing is what makes the world go around.

I'll tell about one that happened to me one day when I went to church with a female friend, which I could tell, pissed off all of her church buddies. People can be very funny, especially in and about church.

Your story also reminds me of church people and police.
