Celebrating lifts one’s soul. Celebrating tells His story. Celebrating is contagious. There’s so much to celebrate:
Let’s celebrate the KidsWorld team members. Ministering to His children, TOGETHER, with such a talented team of people is my number one celebration. I celebrate and I thank God for His bringing us TOGETHER. Each of us individually, graciously bringing our gifts and talents that He has blessed us with to create, to equip, and to impact. It is glorious!
Let’s celebrate Sunday mornings. The previous KidsWorld director always said, “every Sunday is a miracle.” I see that! That’s why on Monday mornings we begin with prayer and praise for what He did.
Let’s celebrate the completion of our church’s most recent giving project, Operation Christmas Child. Last year fifty shoeboxes were sent, and this year God more than tripled that number – over 170 shoeboxes were packed and sent! Yay God. I celebrate because the number of shoeboxes increased. Yes. Wow.
I celebrate, too, because Operation Christmas Child was done TOGETHER. “It was AMAZING!” Church team staff members made shoeboxes. Many church members took a shoebox, filled it, and returned it. Some brought items to fill the shoeboxes. Some gave money towards shipping expenses and/or items to purchase for the boxes. Some participated in the packing party and packed boxes until the supplies ran out. Cold Springs Church people were generous – with their money, their time, their energy, and their love.
There is so much to celebrate! Plus, celebrating is FUN!
I’d like to close with a few of my favorite CELEBRATION Bible verses:
