Silly all used up
Have you ever watched kids play and create? Â If it has been awhile, you should stop what you are doing and make a plan to get to some kids and let them mentor you in the art of play. Â I am worried about the end of silliness and I hopeÂ mine never gets used up. Â I often need to “schedule” time to restore my creative playful muscle so that it does not atrophy. Â Unfortunately many people have decided that be being silly and having fun they are not to be taken seriously and they are not productive, responsible or mature. Â That is just not true! Research has proven that people who know how to laugh and Â play are actually more productive, better problem solvers, have healthier relationships, and build their immune systems, to name a few benefits. Â Further, since God is a God of joy, I think we reflect Him more clearly when we behave joyfully.
I was watching (and joining in) some of my favorite kids play and create and make up stories and plays with the help of my costume bins last night. Â It was so therapeutic and nurtured my soul. I highly recommend it!
