Play is Play
Play is play. Yes, I know. What is the point of writing that? But I am thinking here that not much really needs to be said about play. Play means play. It conjures up images of games, sports, children, fun, toys, laughing, running, hopping, skipping, maybe jumping, maybe yelling, hooting, throwing things, hitting things, tossing things, catching things, creating things, loosening up, cutting up, maybe tickling, maybe wrestling, pretending, make believing, maybe dressing up, telling stories, jokes, hiding, seeking, tagging, swimming, diving, rowing, paddling, singing loudly out of tune or in tune, doing for the sheer pleasure of doing freely without concern for opinions or sneers or smug looks.
So what's your play? Do it today. Do it soon. Do it for the pleasure of play. You won't regret it because play is play and play is part of God's world.
