Celebration: Knowing every good gift from God is a reason to party
Some ideas for practicing:
- Par-tay. No, really. At least once a month invite the neighbors, break out the cake, and practice your joke-telling skills.
- Each time you sit down to a meal together, invite those who are eating to reflect on their day and voice the little “celebrations” they discovered. For example: “Today I celebrated, when my lost keys were found. Or: Today I celebrated when forgiveness was offered to me after I hurt my sisters’ feelings. Or: Today I celebrated when the children put their clothes away without me having to ask. Or: Today I celebrated when I heard the whisper of Jesus, and he said he loved me.”
