In Texas, Spring is already here.
The Bradford Pears have been blooming for weeks with their beautiful white snow-like blooms, the Texas Redbuds are now slowly showing their color as a beautiful accent against the returning green grass. The sun has been out and the weather’s been warm. . . until this week.
It’s officially Spring Break.
With that, we have a streak of storms threatening thunder, lightening, hail and potential twisters. Good times, right? I have boys with nerf guns loaded and boomerangs packed, ready to go out and conquer the park, but we’re hunkering down with some board games instead.
Life is like that sometimes for all of us.
We have plans for a break, to rest and play, but sometimes those plans get interrupted by storms, or deadlines or unexpected events. It can certainly be frustrating and discouraging. It’s easy to just want to throw in the towel, plop down in your chair, and give up.
But please don’t.
Hold on. Hang in there. You never know what is just around the bend. You never know who needed to see your smile today. Or what you needed to learn.
You won’t ever know how much you need the laughter in this round of “Guess Who“.
Unless you play anyway.
Wherever you are in your journey today. . . play anyway.
to more love,
