complicated vs. simplified
humans. at least humans in the western world...
we tend to make things so chaotic and confusing and complicated.
we are busy. and for what? so we can make more money and buy more things and waste more time and sit on the couch in front of the television?
i say i want to be free from it all, but do i really? how much am i really willing to give up?
i'm too busy to think about that right now.
but there is a simple way that i secretly yearn for. you yearn for it to, i'd bet.
a few weeks back, my almost 4 year old daughter asked if i wanted to be a part of her 'Resting Club'. i asked her what they do in the 'Resting Club'.
"play, read stories, make things, have a snack, rest, play some more, brush our teeth, go to bed."
sign me up.
something tells me God would delight in such behavior from mankind.
