A Day to Rejoice!

Did you know that every day has some obscure reason to celebrate? There are over 1,200 national days in the United States and a special calendar to record every one. Today there are four—National Barbie Day, National Crabmeat Day, National Get Over It Day and National Meatball Day—though I suspect most of them are marketing related. It can be fun to observe an unusual day, but not all of these days are worth celebrating. There is one, though, that is worth our time to celebrate.
“This is the day the Lord has made.
We will rejoice and be glad in it.”
Psalm 118:24 New Living Translation
Our God creates each new day for us, to live for Him and worship Him.
“I will exalt you, my God and King,
and praise your name forever and ever.
I will praise you every day;
yes, I will praise you forever.”
Psalm 145: 1,2 New Living Translation
So tomorrow if you’re celebrating National Pack Your Lunch Day, or National Johnny Appleseed Day on Saturday, remember that every day is the day the Lord has made. Praise Him and rejoice in it!
