Something my wife shared with me. Have a wonderful Shabbos!

Chizuk Corner
 "Some people think very low in their weekday pursuits. 
Their activities are devoid of even a spark of sanctity. 
Then, when Shabbos comes and work is prohibited, they try to change from their spiritually 'extinguished' mode to one of spiritual fire and warmth. 
The Torah tells us, -'You must not kindle a fire . . . on the day of Shabbos'. 
 One should not light a fire - even a spiritual flame on Shabbos.  He must imbue his weekly activities with warmth and sanctity as well, so that when Shabbos comes and he increases sanctity, he is not just beginning to create the fire."

The Chasam Sofer Zatzal quoted in Sefer Torah Tavlin
