Celebrate Good Times....Come On!

If you haven't figured out by now, I really enjoy celebrating anything and everything.  Or I at least acknowledge the event, give God thanks, and keep it moving.  The Lord will not be able to mistake my attitude for my blessings as ungratefulness.

Today, five years ago, the hubsters proposed to me.  Ironically, we were getting some dinner at Fazoli's; the plan was to eat and get his apartment packed up because he was moving to a different apartment complex.  As we were sitting there, I was going on and on about how I was a good catch and God doesn't want me to waste time waiting to get married, you never miss a good thing until it's gone...blah, blah, blah. Thankfully, he still had the courage to move forward with his plan.  ***Note to women: It's okay to shut-up sometimes.  My engagement day is an important day for me because it represents a shift in my mind set and it was a time that I could really see and acknowledge God's hand in everything.  We don't have anything special planned, but just acknowledging this day is good enough for me.  Anywho....there's something else to celebrate today as well.

Today my pastors are celebrating their 60th wedding anniversary!  I was moved to tears when I looked at the invitation featured above.  I still can't wrap my mind around it.  Apostle Lyon has been directly in ministry for 40 or more years, married for 60 years, and he just celebrated his 80th birthday last month.  He has always been upright, virtuous, not even a claim of deceit against him.  I'm still in awe, because these numbers and my pastors' lives represent how faithful God is.  Please let me add that they both are in good health, coherent, and independent.

All I can say is, "Wow, God!"

What things do you like to celebrate?  How do you usually celebrate? 


  1. That is pretty amazing! I love to look at the anniversaries in our Sunday paper. That's actually the first thing I read! Congrats on your engagement anniversary too :)

    We usually try to celebrate little things like our daughters' good grades, a milestone for someone, or sometimes no reason at all to celebrate! We should be thankful that we wake up each day :) That's a reason to celebrate!


  2. Amen Heather! Every day is a reason to celebrate. I enjoy celebrating good grades too; I think it's a huge motivator for any age of children.

  3. Awe, congrats TiAnna!

    I left another comment under yesterday's post about where to get your henna. Picture of my first henna gloss app here, http://loveandtangles.blogspot.com/2011/06/henna-clutches.html


I love reading and appreciate each and every comment!
