beautiful message, Shabbat is very special. A time to connect with others and with G-d, and recharge our soul

Anonymous, preparing your heart through study, meditation, and prayer is something you should do on a daily basis. Dressing up, getting out the fine china and crystals, and serving a lavish meal is to joyfully share with Hashem and your fellows what you have been doing all week long.

I agree with " Make it more of a spiritual experience" and I agree with Lori.
By buying special foods and preparing our home and appearance we have set a course and pattern in our lives to put G-d first .How can one not think on spiritual things while doing so. Is it not easier to just get through the Shabbat. Or does preparation begin with the heart when we try to honor G-d with our best?
Realizing of course that every one's 'best' is different.

Very beautiful presentation
I vividly remember walking into my apartment as a young girl, and smelling the wonderful aroma of my bubbies challah and gefilte fish baking and cooking . I have such wonderful memories of spending countless Shabbosim at my best friend's house as a young girl. Now I am Boruch Hashem creating beautiful memories of Shabbos with my husband and daughters. I am really looking forward to saying Good Shabbos to you in person, when you come to Cleveland, I"YH.

Very beautiful message
As a youing child, I would love to come home from school on Friday, and smell the wonderful aroma of my bubbies challah and gefilte fish baking and cooking. To this day, I associate those two amazing smells with Shabbos. I unfortunately have not made my own challah, yet. Maybe one day in the near future, G-d willing. By the way Lori, I am really looking forward to your visit to Cleveland, in two weeks. I hope to get to wish you Good Shabbos in person.

Good to point message
Before some try to find fault or think the message needs to be at a different level...Lori's clip on Shabbat is so user friendly...one that can be shared with those who do just make Shabbat/Saturday a day to jam pack "regular" aspects of life into their day off work or school. I imagine many viewers appreciate this non-threatening, non-preachy way to get a new mindset for Shabbat.

Make it more of a spiritual experience
It's great to have a reason to dress up and bring the china out, but don't you think we should be more concern with preparing our hearts to come before God in worship for who he is. Our dressing up ect is for ourselves, God is looking at the heart, not the outward appearance. Spending time in the daily scriture readings, meditation and prayer, and then share a piece of God with others from what came from spending time in his word. Then not only ourselves but others can share in a spiritual experience on Shabbat. At least do this on some of them.

that special day
It is that special time when you light the candles and say a blessing, and then say your own personal prayer. Sit around and eat with family and friends. Pray and connect to G-d. And recharge our body and soul for the comming week.
By the way, there is a site in which people who need a place for shabbos are hooked up with a host. It's called seeyouonshabbos.com
