Photo courtesty of Bobby Mikul
"Each individual creature is deemed good and everything together is pronounced very good, but the whole of creation at rest on Shabbat is called holy. A day of utter rest and peace, a day apart, Shabbat offers a profound and necessary respite for humans and all of creation...The workweek encourages an active stance in the world, but Shabbat is reserved for simply 'being' and celebrating in the delight of creation."
