Refresh Our Hearts
The news of late has been horrific. Divisive politics. Racial strife. Senseless killing. And while I believe it is responsible to be informed, to know what's going on in our world...
Today I choose to think about better things.
Today, I will think about:
My children's laughter.
Birthday parties at the park with family.
Sloppily eating a piece of watermelon.
Sitting in front of the window A/C at Grandma and Grandpa's house on a hot summer day, letting my cheeks get cold, before running outside to play again.
Being called "uncle."
Watching football on a Sunday morning with my brother.
That first kiss.
I'm not advocating we stick our heads in the sand... only that we occasionally refresh our hearts by taking a minute to enjoy the way the sand feels between our toes.
