February – yuck! This has to be the least favorite of the months. As I write this, the sun is shining and it is unusual February weather. Although some do not agree, I miss the snow and cold. It gave me a reason to stay inside, read a book and watch the snow blow. When the sun shines, everyone thinks they need to be doing something. Except for Mardi Gras, February has no celebrations. And when you live in Indiana, Mardi Gras is only something on the evening news.
A celebration is what February needs. Something bigger than watching a groundhog or buying a card. Something with a wow factor. We need a CELEBRATION!
Oh, silly me. SUNDAY!! February has four Sundays so has four celebrations. The problem is we forget to celebrate on Sunday.
Shout for joy to the LORD, all the earth.
Worship the LORD with gladness; come before him with joyful songs.
Know that the LORD is God.
It is he who made us, and we are his; we are his people, the sheep of his pasture.
Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name.
For the LORD is good and his love endures forever; his faithfulness continues through all generations.
Shout – Joy – Gladness – Thanks giving - Praise
THIS IS WHAT GOING TO CHURCH SHOULD LOOK LIKE
THIS IS WHAT GOING TO CHURCH SHOULD FEEL LIKE.
Sunday is almost here. Are you ready?
Sunday morning wake up.
Have that cup of coffee.
Put on your joy.
Throw open the doors to the church.
PS. But I am still glad February is almost over.
