Life can be hard, sometimes even brutally hard. If we choose to not give up, and to celebrate instead, a beautiful thing can happen. Each time we find ourselves in mourning, we get to make the choice to stay there, or find something to celebrate to pull ourselves out.
Sometimes we celebrate BIG, but often times it’s small.
Other people may look at us like we’re crazy for the things we choose to find JOY in, but that’s okay. Our JOY comes from the Lord, it comes from looking on the bright side, it comes from choosing not to stay in a sad place.
