Celebrating is important in life. Whether it is a birthday, anniversary, graduation, work accomplishment, or something else, it is important to pause and celebrate the milestone. I have thought a lot about this recently after we reached some major milestones in our church, as well as the fact that we are experiencing a lot of milestones in family life. I have always thought it was important to celebrate, but as I go further in life I realize more and more the significance of it.
Celebrating is a reminder of the things that are truly important. It is an opportunity to pause and take note of good things happening around us. Celebrating is a time to be thankful for the people closest to us, as well as the specific event being recognized. Celebrating builds relationships because it brings people together around a common point of happiness. Celebrating encourages progress because it serves as a reminder of the blessings of reaching goals and achieving successes.
Don’t let the busyness of life distract you from the joys of life!
Proverbs 15:13 A glad heart makes a cheerful face, but by sorrow of heart the spirit is crushed.
