This week's post is "play". It reminds me when I played library with my friend, many, many years ago. I also remember taking my daughters to play dates when they were little. It gave them time with their friends and some adult time for me.
However precious those memories are...I find myself not playing as much as I've gotten older and now that the girls are no longer at home. So much time is spent in working, grocery shopping, laundry, etc. Being an adult is a lot of work! How do we find the time or make time to "play"? It's good to step away from the monotony of daily living and go somewhere new...even if it's just the park down the street or to a faraway land via reading a book!
The Lord wants us to "taste and see that He is good" (Psalm 34:8) and also wants us to "honor the Sabbath" (Exodus 20:8). I think that a way to honor the Sabbath is to include rest and play in our week. That will look different for each of us, but do something just for fun!
PS. This was harder than I thought it would be...and certainly didn't go in the direction I originally thought. Now I'm off to go "play" and dance at the local park!
Be blessed and let me know how you will incorporate more "play" in your week!
