Thought for the day 19 October

19 October
After a period of dry, fairly still weather, with a number of sunny days – so that we could enjoy the Autumn colours – we’re back to wind and rain. Younger people find such days great fun, when they put on their wellies and go splashing in the puddles. At some stage in life we lose the sense of fun that puddles give. Yes, at a certain age we have to be careful about being blown over by the wind, slipping on wet leaves or catching a cold by getting soaked – but are there ways in which we can recapture the excitement and fun, the love of life, of younger children?

Lord, sometimes we become too weighed down with the burdens and responsibilities of being adults. Help us to rediscover the magic and wonder of young people
