Did you miss it? It was National Cherry Popsicle Day!
In my office hangs a National Day calendar that lists numerous national days of celebration for every day of the year. Some are relatively well-known, such as Employee Recognition Day, celebrated on the first Monday in March. But did you miss National Cherry Popsicle Day on August 26th? No worries, there are other opportunities. Feeling friendly? There is a National Do a Grouch a Favor Day celebrated on February 16th. How about something earth shaking? There is National Richter Scale day celebrated on April 26th. And if all of this is too much, one can celebrate in agreement on March 9th with National Get Over It Day! Bottom line, it gives everyone a chance to celebrate something every day. Christian believers have the best reason, even exceeding the joy of eating a cherry popsicle!
Through the LORD’s mercies we are not consumed, because His compassions fail not.
They are new every morning; great is Your faithfulness.
Lamentations 3:22-23 (NKJV)
Christian believers should model this daily celebration of joy by celebrating God’s grace and mercy in our lives. God never fails to keep His promise of caring for all who place their faith in His Son, Jesus Christ.
We should celebrate something everyday. All Christian believers have the best reason to celebrate everyday, and we don’t need a National Day Calendar to remind us. We have God’s unchanging and perfect Word, our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
Love and trust the Lord; seek His will in your life.
