Celebrating God's Goodness

As I got a loaf of sweet bread out of the freezer to take with me to Ladies Bible Study this week, I thought of more and more things to take. Why not make it a party, I wondered, like I mentioned in my Feb 22 post? So we did. It was sweet--not only the treats to eat but the time of sharing too.

We went around the table and shared some of the ways that God had helped us in the past. It was so inspiring.

We could have done that without the goodies, but it did make it more special—a real celebration of God’s goodness—like a party.

As we shared a theme seemed to emerge. One lady summed it up with these words from Psalm 147:11:
“the Lord delights in those who fear him,
who put their trust in His
unfailing love.”
At the end we all agreed it would be a good thing to do every year.

And I still have the sweet taste in my mouth.
"I will celebrate the goodness of the Lord."
His unconditional love is awesome.
