Time for Make Believe


This morning I read a most interesting comment about women and stress. So often we feel that we need to be diligent, busy, productive, and with it! We do, but we also need to take time to feed our soul's: to relax in God's word and to spend time in just 'being'. In the book "Women and Stress", Jean Lush makes this statment that is worth contemplating:

"Take time for make-believe. Abandon yourself in play. I think God gives us an imagination for a reason. Christ knows the pressures we endure. Perhaps this is one reason He encourages us to become "as little children."

So, what can you to today to create some "play" in your life? Is it time for a dress up tea party with a friend? Or an hour at your sewing machine, creating something from your fabric stash that defies sensibility? Whatever it is you find to do, enjoy it with all your heart and have a blessed day!
