Omer - Day 29

At twilight today, Saturday, May 6th, a new day begins, the 29th day of "counting the Omer". Today marks four weeks and a day of counting. 

Just after twilight this evening, a new day begins and "Shabbat" ends. Shabbat is Hebrew for Sabbath. In synagogues today, a service called הַבְדָּלָה "Havdalah"  meaning  "separation" takes place on Saturday night to usher in the new week. Shabbat ends the week, and a new week begins. 

PRAYER: Thank you, Lord, for loving so much you give us rest. On the twenty-ninth day of counting the Omer, we bless You. Thank you for continuing to walk by our side through all seven weeks of the countdown to Pentecost! Amen.
