Leap Day

mountain-goats-1156056_1920It’s leap day. Like a day that doesn’t exist, where we can step out of time, or an extra day to do with what we wish.

Leap day has always been interesting for me. I’ve often wondered why it’s not celebrated like some other occasions. We have other holidays, why not celebrate something that only comes around every four years?

There’s an interesting sense of hope and possibility that bleeds out into the rest of the year. Maybe it’s silly, and I know there’s a technical reason for it, but it’s like, if an extra day can be added to a year, what other magical things could happen?

Then I suppose you need to get into how a year is determined, but that’s not really the point. It’s a chance for reset, to reevaluate some things, maybe even to remind us that there’s something far bigger than us.

Sometimes we get so caught up in our own lives thinking this is all there is. But it isn’t. There’s so much more. There’s so much beauty in the world, and far beyond it. There’s a Creator of all things, and leap day is just another reminder of how small we really are.
