not enough parties

We don't throw enough parties.

We are too serious.  We are too consumed with making a buck and all of the tasks at hand.  Even parties become something that we must do, that must be perfect, that are dreaded, and finally we are relieved that they are over.

There are lots of parties in the Bible.  Jesus turned the water into wine at the wedding in Cana.  David danced before the Lord.  There are many stories about the great banquet in heaven.

Friends, life is to be celebrated, enjoyed, savored.  What if we threw a party for no reason at all?   Set a date, invite who you will, and just enjoy being with those you love.  Don't clean the house, don't make expensive food, just make it easy.  No worries.

Everyone bring something easy.  I'll put on the music.  Walk in and smile.

We don't throw enough parties.

How about a party, a celebration, just because we are alive?  Isn't that worth a heartfelt, joyful smile every now and then.  We need to dance with life.

For no reason at all, throw a party!  I love it.

It's a beautiful day in God's world, be sure to see the good.
