This is a very expensive time of the year for the Charles family. In the space of six weeks we celebrate Mother’s Day, our anniversary, my birthday, Father’s Day, and Cathy’s birthday. Our budget line for “gifts given” takes quite a beating this time of year.
But do you think we mind? Of course not. Is it hard to keep to our budget with all these celebrations? It certainly is. What motivates us is our shared love and joy of being together.
That’s the way it is with our love of Christ. He has done so much for us that we’d do anything for Him. Making Him a priority in our schedule to talk to Him, worship Him, praise Him is an easy choice. Giving to Him, finding a place of service, encouraging others in Him are simply opportunities for expressing our joy.
I love celebrating together! See you in church on Sunday!
