This picture called "celebration" caught my eye today, not because its of Disney or is of astounding quality but rather because of a feeling. Today was a trying day at work with more that the usual pressures and I had to stay a little later than normal. Not a big deal under normal circumstances, but today was my last day before vacation. You heard it right, I am on VVAACCAATTIIOONN right NOW! Celebrate! Yet, in all too short a space of time my vacation will be over and it will be "back to the grind". I wonder, why bother to rejoice at all? The answer I have found is located in the book of Philippians.
Php 4:4 Rejoice in the Lord always! Again I will say, Rejoice!
Vacations come and go, situations change along with one's life, but God doesn't change. He is always there and always will be! When I feel down, I sing this song (in Greek because that way only a very few people would ever guess what I am doing) and it cheers me up. I try to celebrate each and every day and as I grow older they become more precious with the passage of time; even the bad one's because tomorrow has the hope of improvement. God has a way of reaching right into the heart and making even the bad better and the better best. Don't ask me how, I am not that bright, I just know HE DOES; that is something to celebrate!!!!!!!
