Jesus liked to celebrate! In the Bible, we read about him going to weddings and big dinners at other people’s houses.

Celebrating is a time to feel joy and happiness with the people and blessings around us! Take a moment—or a few—to enjoy special occasions, such as Mother's Day, Father's Day, graduations. Pentecost (May 23), especially, is a time to be celebrate the power of the Holy Spirit in our lives.

We all experience "God moments." Let's celebrate them!
