We just got back from 5 days at DisneyWorld. May I now say ... too much fun! :) We had a great time with the mouse and friends! There were rides and shows and parades and the overall theme of celebration! And, that is what struck me. CELEBRATE!
We, as the people of God, are to celebrate! It is all throughout the Word how the people of God are to celebrate and did and do, with joy, His great gifts to them, the wonders He has done, the great ways He provides, what He allows and what He redeems, even when we don't understand. Joy, celebration! That is what struck me during the parades at Disney, that life is a celebration, not of Disney fun, but of God and His great goodness to us. Blessed be the name of the Lord!
