Do you ever forget to celebrate and treasure life? In the busy-ness of life, sometimes the joy and pleasure of it all gets buried under schedules, calendars, technology, time and tiredness. We forget that God has given us so many ways to rejoice, praise and play!
What did you enjoy doing as a child? Did you play sports? Cook or bake? Create with crafts? Dance? Play an instrument? Spend time outside? Read or write? Do puzzles? How often do you engage in those activities now?
Even though we are parents trying to provide these opportunities for our kids, let’s also remember to enjoy them ourselves! Even better—enjoy them as a family! Whether it’s a short time each day or a few hours on a weekend, set time aside to play together as a family. Your joy and pleasure will delight God’s heart. So, celebrate God and God’s blessings! Laugh and dance and sing and create! Go and celebrate life!
