This Saturday is our annual Christmas party at Family Life Church! We will be having an ornament gift exchange and a free brunch! We have done this for 5 years now and we always have the best time. Saturday December 12th I hope to see you at Family Life Church at 10a.m.
I am going to be sharing a word about enjoying life today right where you are in the midst of anything you are going through enjoying that moment. The other day when I was reading my Bible I came across 1Kings 19:6 Elijah had just gotten done with a big battle and he had fallen asleep. An angel woke him up and in the amplified it says "behold there was a cake baked on the coals".
You know what this tells me? God loves cake! God loves to celebrate! He likes a good party! I think in the midst of it all that God was not only providing food for Elijah, but He could have made anything for Elijah. After all He is God. But God picked cake. I think in the midst of the battles in your life, no matter what is going on take a moment to have cake. Enjoy your life right where you are.
I am taking time this week to eat cake. To enjoy my life right where it is. God loves the party, and it is going on everyday of your life. All you have to do is take a moment and enjoy life today and everyday!

This was a great post. I love the idea of God blessing fun! He wouldn't have given us laughter otherwise, right?
You need to go over to Common Ground for a visit. Debra has started another blog where women are gathering to discuss and draw nearer to God. I think you would really enjoy it. You can get there from my sidebar. There is a photo up which says A Day In The Life. Just click it to visit.

Hi there, Crystal,

I love your name. In fact, I think your name is prophetic, and that you shimmer like crystal and sparks fly (in a GOOD way!) when you share God's truth.

Thank you for visiting my blog. And I just have to mention that I did a teaching on this very passage of scripture about 4 years ago...and I said the same thing about cake. Great minds! Cake ALWAYS makes us feel better! ;)
