Play As A Spiritual Practice

Today we continue to reflect upon play and playing as we add memory to our reflection.  What do you remember about playing?

For me, the month of July reminds me of my pre-teen years spent in the Mid-West of the United States.  Air conditioning was not as common then as it is now, so a hot summer day often led to a very warm summer night.   Evenings might mean taking part in the evening swim at the local pool, catching lightning bugs and putting them into jars or playing tag with the neighborhood children.  When it came time for bed, I slept, as I was weary from all that playing.  

These are happy memories.  I remember these memories now with pleasure and gratitude to God for these moments of pleasure.

What happy memories do you have of playing?   Please share these with me by leaving a comment.
