And so we have come to the last of these thirty-one days. Thirty-one days to think about celebrationsand the part that they play in our lives.
I hope that you have come away with some new ideas to use in your own celebrations. But most of all, I hope that you have renewed vision for what a celebration can be...not just a meaningless exercise in having fun, but a joyful occasion of grateful praise!
I also hope that you will make time to celebrate. I know that we are busy...busy making a living, busy raising a family, busy keeping a house, busy in a myriad of ways. But I think that it is important to celebrate. Celebrate in a big way or a small way. Celebrate a birthday with a big bash, or with a simple meal. Celebrate an anniversary with a getaway, or with a card and a kiss. Celebrate a major milestone of graduation or a wedding. Celebrate a first tooth or a loose tooth. Celebrate a friendship with an outing, or a phone call. Celebrate His provision. Celebrate the first day of school, and the last day of school. Celebrate the end of something unpleasant. Celebrate a new beginning. Celebrate the loss of 5 pounds. Celebrate the memory of a life lived for the Savior. Celebrate family. Celebrate the first day of spring, or the first frost. Celebrate the big days. Celebrate an ordinary day. Celebrate an answered prayer. Raise an Ebenezer.
Always with gratitude. Always acknowledging a loving Father.
Because thou hast been my help,
therefore in the shadow of thy wings will I rejoice.
