Many sacrifices were offered on that joyous day, for God had given the people cause for great joy. The women and children also participated in the celebration, and the joy of the people of Jerusalem could be heard far away.
Today’s scripture is so right on! This is the day for me to rejoice! I am turning up the music, cooking a special meal, baking some yummy desserts, and a delicious fruit drink. Then I am calling over my friends to join the parrtttty! Want to join me?! Then come on in! There’s a lot here to share. This is going to be all day, all night long. Drop in at any time, let me see your face, give you a warm embrace, eat to your heart’s content, and let me tell you how special you are!!
This is what you do when you have something to rejoice about. Are you healthy? Rejoice! Do you have a car? Rejoice! Do you have children? Rejoice! Do you have a roof over your head? Rejoice! Think of all the reasons you have to rejoice, and go ahead and have a JOY party!!! Let others hear you from afar and begin to host joy parties everywhere!
I will rejoice in Him and be glad for He has done marvellous things in my life! Come party with me!
