Skip It

I was in a parking lot the other day and a boy, he looked about twelve, went skipping by. That got me to wondering and I asked God why it was that so many kids skip but so few adults. What is it about growing up that just drains the skip out of us?

We talked about it for a bit. We dispensed with a lot of the usual stuff about kids just having more energy and adults being more purposeful in there locomotion. We discounted the adults who have gotten so old or out of shape that skipping is either uncomfortable or downright dangerous. We even tossed aside the notion that being bigger just made it harder.

What did God finally suggest that I agreed with? Most adults are just too afraid that they might look silly. Me? I think that’s a terrible thing, so I’d like everyone reading this to make sure they do a little skipping this week.

I think I’ll skip breakfast, lunch, and dinner and head right to dessert
