Be Like Children

Child laughing while running through water.


Is there anything better than watching a young child lose him or herself in the joy of play? It is a gift and a reminder that we too should sometimes reclaim that sense of joy and playfulness.


Help me open myself
up to the many wonderful
memories of my childhood.
May I find a way to reclaim the joy that
those memories bring to me.


While we might not be able to do all the things that we could when we were young, there are ways we can embrace the feeling they brought. Blow some bubbles. Buy a coloring book and crayons. Gather some friends and play a board game.

  1. Childlike Joy! My favorite quote from Thomas Merton…God does not see the score or the scorekeeper; only His little child redeemed in Grace. I always want to be that child…
    Buen Camino and continued blessings
