PLAYING HOOKY

“Good morning world. As I have been writing about summer, time, work and play, I am now wondering have you ever played hooky going along your way? 
 
And asking you that hook line and sinker question do you even know what playing hooky is? 
 
Well playing hooky means you do not have permission to be missing!
 
For instance if you don't want to go to work ,and you just don't show up....that means you were playing hooky and missing illegally! 
 
Bottom line, playing hooky means you were not given permission to be absent.
 
The same thing happens if you skip a day of school. 
 
Therefore in that clue, playing hooky from class...by not opening up that door, you too were breaking the rules in the past..
 
So thinking about things in the past, present and future....as summer and time are coming also going, while we are all hooking fish and swimming, staying away from work, class and chores…… let’s think some more about what all is involved with playing hooky.

And as we think about playing hooky , let me ask you some more questions.
 
Why is it when we do the things we are not supposed to do….. while we are enjoying the slow pace found around our unscheduled vacations as we are playing hooky by taking days off without permission....that we feel justified to be missing in action?

And why is it when we need a break from reality for Heaven's sake that we decide it’s okay to play hooky, simply because we all need some delightful recreational time in that get away!
 
So thinking about things in that "good and bad needs a break way"....I agree missing work, chores, and school is cool, since being sick and tired of doing the right thing while feeling like a fool or machine .... playing hooky is sweet!
 
Yes indeed I agree playing hooky from work, chores, or school should be a summertime rule for everybody. 
 
Therefore opening up our windows, going out of our doors, while hooking the bait to the line and playing hooky outdoors during the summertime  is a great sight... 
 
But wait is that really right?
 
Because playing hooky in life also means that we close our church doors when the hot sun arrives!
 
On the other hand believe me I understand that congregational absence during the SIMMER-time too. 
 
Because being hot enough under the collar, Nobody wants to get any hotter. 
 
So not wanting to get any hotter, we do not want to hear any more screeching, or preaching about demons, satan, hades or anything else rotten !

Therefore during the summertime needing a way to cool off, we all feel like we need a break from the hot as hell sermons that we hate. 
 
Because after all….. we are on vacation every day in some way! 
 
Subsequently summertime seems to be a great time for hooking fish, and telling crooked fish tales, while playing hooky from the sermons wail! 
 
Therefore playing hooky in the hot summertime gives us a handy dandy excuse for Not going to church as well!
 
And that escape would be great. 
 
However, as we play hooky, while resting on beach blankets, nestling our backs into the hot sand as we rest and play We all feel guilty in a lot of ways.....
 
Yes we feel guilty because we have run away!
 
But You know what? 
In my opinion playing hooky is..... OKAY!!
 
Yes to me it is Okay to play hooky from work, class, also chores,
 
And it’s especially Okay to play hooky from church! 
 
Because church is not just one place!
 
That means as you are feeling guilty today about sleeping late and not going to church yesterday, I have great news for you! 
 
You don't have too feel that way too!
 
Because you don't have to walk through your church doors to have a way to talk to the Lord!
 
Happily you can also sit outside underneath that gorgeous green old oak tree and sing hymns, as you call out Jesus name silently while dreaming of Eternity. 
 
You can additionally look up into His big beautiful blue sky and praise the Lord for all time!
 
Happily you can sit on grass, or build a sand castle by your beach blanket everyday as you pray. 
 
And on those steamy summer days leading to the cool summertime nights....that are taking us all to a great eternal life.... I have additionally found the cool moon and the startling beautiful stars….. also light up the church lights in my heart !
 
That means with Grace all around us found in the Lords face....located in the nature He creates.... there are a lot of great ways to go to church today!
 
Therefore behind natures door in any season especially summertime there will always be an amazing way to praise and pray to the Lord for you and me!
 
So occasionally playing hooky during any season, anywhere, anytime, any-place, with anybody for One Reason.. is a perfect time to pray, praise and play as you receive Jesus Christ into your life any day! 
 
Therefore go ahead and receive your beautiful Salvation as you bend your knee underneath a tree! 
 
Praise the Lord in your sweet dreams!
 
Play with Jesus as you fish, also swim. 
 
Then accepting your Salvation while Splashing in the waves with Him ....going one on one with the Lord.... Know anytime any place...you can be and are Saved!
 
So knowing that you are going to Heaven….take your time and enjoy your summertime sights that are all around us day and night that come to your mind and into your life. 
 
Just remember, while you are on summer vacation or playing hooky….to take time to close your eyes! 
 
Because day or night ... Any-where you are with Jesus Christ asleep or awake you Are in church today!
 
So knowing church is everywhere, take time to praise the Lord for giving you your wonderful seasons…. as you enjoy the REASONS for your neat peaceful carefree Summer, And Time! 
 
And as you play hooky.... remember today.... as you go to your amazing summertime church....  anywhere, anyplace, anytime, all alone you too can praise the Lord!
 
Therefore as I said before.....You don't have to be behind the closed church doors to be surrounded by the Heavenly light in the summertime!
 
That means Happily you will always find…. Anytime is a great way to celebrate the summer sights inside of your soul . 
 
And any day or night is a great time to enjoy the Son-shine in your life! 
 
So go ahead and play Hooky from the church building today. 
 
Because meeting Our Savior underneath the old oak tree…. Jesus Christ will give you permission to skip the preaching . 
 
Bottom line one more time in the beginning to the never ending remember that……Jesus Christ doesn't mind where you are....as long as you are spending your time praying, praising and playing hooky with Him today!" Joslin Fitzgerald

Your Prayer of Salvation
 
Dear Jesus, I know I have done bad things in the past, and that I have done bad things today, and that I will continue to do bad things tomorrow as I am going along my way.  Yes that makes me a sinner, just like everyone else in the world every day, with all of the bad things I am doing and saying.
 
So, because I am a sinner I know I need a Savior....
 
Therefore my sins and my unhappiness are why I have come to you today, as I am silently praying, because I want to be eternally happy, and I need to be forever saved.
 
In saying that Jesus, I believe that you were born on Christmas Day.  I believe Jesus, that you lived a perfect life that is written down in the Bible to teach me what is wrong, and show me what is right. And I believe Jesus, in your love for me that you died on the Cross to save me from all of my sins day and night. Yes Jesus I believe you died, and defeated the grave as you arose from the dead on the third day. Yes I believe you are Alive forevermore and that you are living inside my heart and soul eternally night and day!
 
Thus in believing Jesus, you are the Son of God I am asking for your forgiveness for all my sins that I know, and those I do not know that I have committed, including the ones that I will continue to daily wallow in, as I claim in Your Eternal scriptural promise in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit that I am now going to heaven.
 
Yes I claim in my new faith this very Minute that I am saved, because you died for me on the Cross, and in your arising on the third day, I know I  will not go to my endless grave. In that statement that just saved my life Thank you Jesus, I am now whole since the Holy Spirit lives within my soul!
 
Therefore in this prayer I believe that I am born again into heavens sight, and in your Biblical Promise of salvation written in the scriptures I have received everlasting life! Thus as I am asking you to change my blind darkness to guiding light you are forever my Savior, Jesus Christ.
 
Amen
 
Absolutely I pray that you have accepted Jesus Christ as your eternal guiding light, and your Savior today. I know I may never meet you here on earth as we are roaming, but if you truly prayed your prayer, to Jesus requesting forgiveness of your sins, and asking for your salvation you are right now this second saved. And I will see you when we go Away back home!
