PLAY Therapy!!!!

Play therapy. It’s not just for kids!

I tend to take my life a bit seriously. But, later this week, I am packing up and heading to Six Flags theme park in Dallas with my kiddos and hubby, for some hardcore PLAY THERAPY.

Ecclesiastes 3: 1-8
For everything there is a season, a time for every activity under heaven. A time to be born and a time to die. A time to plant and a time to harvest. A time to kill and a time to heal. A time to dear down and a time to build up. A time to cry and a time to laugh. A time to grieve and a time to dance. A time to scatter stones and a time to gather stones. A time to embrace and a time to turn away. A time to search and a time to quit searching. A time to keep and a time to throw away. A time to tear and a time to mend. A time to be quiet and a time to speak. A time to love and a time to hate. A time for war and a time for peace.

Ecclesiastes 3: 11-12
Yet God has made everything beautiful for its own time. He has planted eternity in the human heart, but even so, people cannot see the whole scope of God’s work from beginning to end. So I concluded there is nothing better than to be happy and enjoy ourselves as long as we can.

So….here we go! A few days of laughing and giggling with some of my favorite peeps on planet earth!!!

And meditating on these verses the whole time…and wondering peacefully what season God has in store for us next.

Are the seasons turning for you? What do you see?

Linking up with a new friend today!!!!

  1. Enjoy your play therapy! Jesus said we need to have faith like a child...sometimes I think we need to play like children too :)

  2. Have fun - we too easily get bogged down with the mundane aspects of life and worries that we forget that laughter is a great gift.

  3. Have fun!! We are going to Fiesta Texas this summer in San Antonio if you need another dose of play therapy then!! :)

  4. So glad you linked up! We're heading to Disney World next week...and you've given me a new way to think about that time. I'm wondering what it will bring...with 6 kids in our group, I'm hoping not time for searching! :)

  5. A time to dance...yes, God loves to see us have fun and enjoy ourselves, too.

    So glad you linked up today -- and have a wonderful, safe and fun-filled trip!

  6. this really lets me know that there is nothing new under the sun. That everything we are going through right now has been gone through before.
    Six Flags is just what the Dr. ordered yes?:) Sounds like SO much fun and will be just the thing your heart needs Steph! take pictures for me too ok? love you!

  7. Awww, have a blast!! You're kiddos are so cute!

    Definitely seasons are changing for and I keep feeling the Lord nudge, "Don't wait to accept the change." Praying it includes a hubster and diving into my heart's passion of working with missions.

    Enjoy your trip to 6 Flags!! Yay for Spring Break!

  8. THank you so much for all the well wishes and encouragement to just go and have some fun! That is just what the soul needs sometimes!!!! I plan to take lots of pics with my itty bitty camera, LOL, I am not talented in this area ha!

    Tiffini, I am in awe of your artistic ability!!!

    Sam, embrace that change girl! Praying a hubster your way soon if that's what God has for you. He better be pretty amazing though to be good enough for you girl, because you are one awesome woman of faith!

  9. oh, friend LOVE! yes, giggle therapy is the best! and in these times that tear us deep, sometimes, many times He will bring laughter to heal...praying right now it is just that! fuLL! laughter! LIFE!!!!!

  10. Laughing is the best therapy for me! Thanks for stopping by and SO good to meet you!

  11. Your blog inspired an art therapy group project. A sort of mandala representing, "For everything there is a season, a time for every activity under heaven..."

    It would be so interesting and beautiful to see how people would represent the "seasons."


    I hope your trip was amazing and you played your little hearts out!!
