Don’t get Too Caught up in Life, to Live Life.

One of my favorite memories from early childhood was catching lightning bugs in the back yard. It seemed that we used to spend more time outside than in, during the summer months: not because we were banished from the house, but because we had amazing fun just being outside playing. We were taught to use our imagination.

Who ever thought that taking sticks, bottle caps, pebbles, broken glass, and dirt could be the foundation for entire cities!

Our minds were engaged in constructing elaborate buildings: broken glass became our stained glass windows of the church; gravel defined our parking lots, and leaves and twigs with bits of pine straw entwined fashioned our roof, jar lids made great ponds, and  breaking off small limbs created massive trees for our park.  We made furniture from bottle caps, and this all went on for hours until mom called us in to supper.

The total cost for this adventure? time.

Fast forward to, today. Well, I’ll let you think on that one for a while. When was the last time that you were engaged in using your imagination instead of depending on technology to tell you how to think or feel?

This week’s Lattereign reminds us not to get too caught up in life to really live life.

Hurricane Life When Will we Find the Time

About gracemorganwriter

What is a writer? Someone who writes. For me, writing means to observe the world in a fresh way; it gives us encouragement when we are struggling to follow the path, and hope that we can keep pressing towards the mark. Writing gives us grace for the journey, and shines light into the darkened places of our soul.
