"Heaven is going to be the greatest party ever. We need to get practicing."

We watched the Rend Collective Art of Celebration video in devotions tonight and I'm obsessed with it. Take the next 7 minutes of your life and watch it. 

We pull back from life and become spectators because we're afraid of being hurt again... But Jesus is always doing a new thing. He's not done yet.

Seriousness is not a fruit of the spirit, but Joy is.

Our God is the ultimate artist of celebration, the inventor of the party and the healer of the broken.

There is an irreplaceable laughter in the heart of God and the whole world cannot contain it.

We must wrestle for our blessing, we must fight for our Joy.

The Bible says, "Taste and see that the Lord is good," and, "The Joy of the Lord is our strength." 

Heaven is going to be the greatest party ever. We need to get practicing. 

We're fired up about living a life of celebration. Lucky for us, camp feels like a celebration every single day. 

Highs of day:

Waking up on the suspension bridge with my 33 favorite gal pals
Choctaw breakfast together (plus strawberries, blueberries and biscuits)
