Our neighborhood had a type of progression party; there were four stops, with the last one being dessert. The table was filled with many delicacies that were too much for the eyes to behold. After we had gotten our sugar overload, some of us decided that it was time to retire to our own homes and began heading out the door. One of the neighbors had gotten too full and couldn’t hold another bite of food, so she decided to take her treat home with her, and wrapped it in a napkin. The hostess, in her curiosity, asked what she had decided to take; when she showed her, she was overjoyed to find out that it was a cookie that she had baked herself. Her delight was expressed in such a way that it made me think of how delighted God must be when we choose correctly; to do the right things, to follow His precepts, to be kind and loving to one another, and especially when we decide to follow Jesus. Choose this day whom you will serve, and bring joy to the Lord!
"Just so, I tell you, there is joy before the angels of God over one sinner who repents.” Luke 15:10
