The longest day of the year has come and is almost gone as I write this.
I thought my family wouldn’t be able to participate. We had plans to attend Messy Church tonight with our kids. Usually Messy Church falls on a Saturday afternoon, but this month it fell on a Friday night.
Turns out, we barbecued at church, so while that was happening, the kids ran around and entertained themselves with good ol’ fashion bug catching (there were tons of caterpillars in cups by the night’s end) and games of tag and hide n’ seek. It was awesome to watch all the kids outside, running around, carefree and enjoying the extra minutes of daylight.
So for the first annual Longest Day of Play, we did pretty good. The kids were outside playing. The adults were outside barbecuing and chatting. Everyone was enjoying the long rays of sunshine. And everyone was feeling God’s love.
There will be plenty more days of play, but today was extra special.
