Day 16: Child’s play

Children, when playing, may be so absorbed in their play that they don’t always think about oncoming traffic. Hence this warning sign. But perhaps it is also a warning to us who feel over whelmed by life’s stresses. When did you last allow yourself the chance to play?  When were you last so absorbed in a game as to be oblivious to the pressures of life?  Play is good for you!

I promise you that you cannot get into God’s kingdom, unless you accept it the way a child does.” Mark 10:15

The city streets will be filled with boys and girls playing there. Zechariah 8:5
