They had been quiet for way too long. Where are they and what are they up to? I wondered.
I checked the living room…no toddlers. Hmm.
Then I heard their giggles. I ascended the stairs.
What’s this? I followed a dusty white trail. Oh my goodness, it’s everywhere! The familiar fragrance of Johnson’s Baby Powder greeted my nose.
There stood my boys, in our bathroom, frozen in a powder wonderland, wide-eyed, staring at me through powder-covered faces.
I took a deep cleansing breath. To my amazement, I relaxed. Giggles surfaced from within, giving life to my weary soul. The boys hadn’t been defiant—just creative. I ran for the camera.
Sometimes as a busy mom, I get so focused on the tasks at hand. I forget to relax. Have fun. Even God relaxed after six busy days of creating our world and perhaps… He even giggled.
Ask God to help you relax today and even enjoy a giggle or two.
There is a time for everything, a season for every activity under the heavens. A time to cry and a time to laugh. Ecclesiastes 3: 1,4 (NIV).
