On the 7th day G-d rested?

In 6 days G-d created the world. On the 7th day He rested. But Gd doesn't need rest. He is not human. Therefore, we have to understand it as follows: Each day of creation Gd was creating another Mask "The Masks of Nature." On Shabbat He rested. He rested from creating Masks. Shabbat is a special day where Hashem is not creating any masks. If we observe Shabbat properly we can enjoy a special closeness with our Creator that can only be achieved on Shabbat.
(I heard this concept on http://Torahmedia.com )
Shabbat Shalom

Life and Death are in the Hands of the Tongue

מָוֶת וְחַיִּים בְּיַד לָשׁוֹן lit trans: "Life and Death are in the Hands of the Tongue"- Mishlei.

Speech has both the power to bring about death and/or bring about life. Notice how this pasuk uses the term "in the HANDS" It is amazing how relevant this term is for our days - Today Lashon Hara (bad mouthing, slander, gossip, etc) can be done easily using our Hands. (i.e., via chat, status updates, tweets, blogs, etc) Suggestion: Always think twice before clicking send.
