Rejoice in the Lord always, again, I say, rejoice! A paraphrase of that says “Celebrate God all day, every day, I mean, revel in him!” The New Testament letter to the Philippians invites us not to worry about anything but to “Let petitions and praises shape your worries into prayers, letting God know your concerns. Before you know it, a sense of God’s wholeness, everything coming together for good, will come and settle you down. It’s wonderful what happens when Christ displaces worry at the center of your life.”

This is one of my favourite passages. It goes on to say that we ought to focus our minds and meditate on “things true, noble, reputable, authentic, compelling, gracious—the best, not the worst; the beautiful, not the ugly; things to praise, not things to curse…. Do that, and God, who makes everything work together, will work you into his most excellent harmonies.”                  Philippians 4: 1-9, The Message

Come celebrate God with us!

Every blessing,

Mary  +
