Rejoice and share the celebration, just like you would share coffee and doughnuts.
We must do our best to listen to the Word of God because He has good news that will refresh our souls. God’s Word brings us happiness, and we’re called to share our joy in the Lord with others!
Today is holy to our God! Wipe away any tears and sadness and celebrate the Lord’s presence in your life with those you love. Rejoicing in the Lord is the strength that can help you each and every day! Have you ever lifted the spirits of someone in your family by reminding him or her of God’s love for them? Did that reminder provide strength and hope … or even a smile?
May you and your family always take comfort in God’s Word. Blessings to you all.
