The party’s over

Presents are opened, meal is done and the nap is over, now what? After the party, this time of year can be very depressing. Factor in a poor economy, job loss and unemployment at record highs and its no wonder this little guy looks down and out. However, at times like this I like to think about my answer to people who ask how I am doing. My reply is in two parts: The first one is “Every day above ground is a good day” and for those who seem to care; “Every day way above ground is a better day”. Each day holds the possibility of being good and if not, then maybe tomorrow will be better. Way above ground refers to the next life with God and no matter what that might be like, it has to be better than anything on Earth. Where does all this come from you might ask? Well, it is sort of an adaptation of the following verse:

Php 4:4 Rejoice in the Lord always: and again I say, Rejoice.

The Webster Bible

If God is really there, then no matter what is happening, I am never really alone, never without hope. Somehow, someway, The God of the heavens will bring joy into my life, not just once, but on a daily basis. Now, that is something to really think about! The party may be over, but the celebration of life goes on and on and on!
