I’ve decided the best gift I can give my son is to live free from distraction. I love to be free of mental clutter…the crowding wants and woes that leave little room to feel divine Spirit.
We all want to feel that freshness that comes like spring.
How do we bring that delight, childlikeness and joy into each moment? By silencing the push and pull of materialism. By declaring that you have the right to be free from mental burden and distraction. By knowing that distraction is not coming from your Maker.
So, instead, take this moment to turn wholeheartedly to God. Give your children and your true selfhood your whole attention and focus. Experience joy and freshness like children do. Watch how that simple joy can expand and fill your heart with delight.
Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you.**
