Last week my girls and one of their friends wanted to go to the park. I was reminded of the days when "park" was synonymous with "playground." We would go to the park just to get out of the house and burn off some energy. This time the playground was ignored. We were on a photo shoot (practicing for senior pictures) and the mission was to find the most scenic backdrops. The girls had fun taking turns posing for the camera. I was impressed at some of the pictures they ended up with.
It was a magical morning. I had to fight the urge of feeling like I ought to be doing something more productive. Spending idle moments with my children is not time wasted.
So teach us to number our days, That we may gain a heart of wisdom. --Psalm 90:12
