It may be because I am in the second half of life so I have a long list of activities that I have participated in or it may be that I have given up things that really ought to be a part of my life still.
See that beautiful guitar? That is my college graduation present from my parents, “in case teaching doesn’t pan out”. I used to play that daily. Now I dust it weekly.
Some things that I used to do belong in the past as Paul encourages us in 1 Corinthians 13:11 ” when I was a child, I used to speak as a child, think as a child, reason as a child; when I became (an adult) I did away with childish things.”
But playing the guitar doesn’t have to be one of those things. Life gets full: relationships, parenting, career pursuits, etc. Sometimes we set aside an activity that is really a sacrifice to give up at the time. Mine was guitar playing. Lately I have been looking at this with such a melancholy glance that I am considering making time for it again.
What is something you used to do that you want to make time for again?
