We are enjoying the company of the Schmiedicke family this week and our kids (all 12!) have had a ball together. No video games. No expensive toys. No gizmos or gadgets. No TV. They’ve been fishing, catching crayfish, tadpoles, working in the gardens, helping with the animals, and…best of all…swimming in the pond. Sure there have been a few times we needed to step in…like when the boys were roasting grasshoppers for a snack…but on God’s playground there really isn’t much bad that can be done. It is designed for kids to enjoy.
Why has life become so complicated and miserable?
God help us return to the simplicity you intended and, like the birds of the air and the lilies of the field, enjoy your generous care and provision.
