This weekend, I urge to to recall one thing from your childhood that brought you joy or pleasure, and indulge yourself in that activity.
I'm writing this from within my cardboard fort.
I had my oldest son build a cubicle out of cardboard boxes for me this week, partially for use as my vision board, and partially because I needed to create some semblance of privacy .
My cubicle seems to remind friends and family of the boxes they played in as children. Hubby had a fort made of boxes, my prayer partner remembers a cardboard house, and I have fond memories of a rocket ship my mom created for me.
Should we "outgrow" those things that brought us pleasure as children? The cardboard forts, blowing bubbles, making mud pies? Why would we?
- Play with dolls (or action figures).
- Climb the monkey bars or swing on a swingset.
- Build a fort with blankets.
- Create costumes and play dress-up.
"Assuredly, I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God as a little child will by no means enter it." Luke 18:17 NKJV
What will you do?
