Here is a present for you if you don't already know about this free app: this is my favorite app for knowing the Shabbat candle lighting times along with the weekly Parsha readings (AND commentaries and activities too). I hope it blesses you so that you can sanctify the time of our weekly Sabbath. Customize to your specific time zone. Rest up and shine on!
Do not forget that the Hebrew word "batach" (usually translated as "trust" in English) is really a word that depicts supreme protection. Batach's root letters are the "Bet" (a Hebrew picture of a house), "Tet" (a Hebrew picture of a basket surrounding the object and carrying it), and a "Chet" (a Hebrew picture of a wall). All three should again assert you that YOU are the contents inside the house, the basket and the wall. Abba will guard you, surround you, and protect you so that is why you should TRUST Him. He is affirming it in the word pictures, if you haven't experienced it enough personally and read all of His supernatural provisions for all of creation. (Can I get a Dayenu, please?!) He even triumphed over death, which was the worst and most certain thing in life (as Solomon spoke). You are hemmed in, safe and sound. So rest and trust in Him today!
