Choosing to Celebrate Life

I am linking up for the Five Minute Friday. The FMF is hosted by Kate Motaung on her blog Heading Home. Today’s prompt is “Celebrate.” Write for five minutes; unedited.

I have to be honest here friends, I haven’t much felt like celebrating. In fact, if you read my post from the other day (When Life is Wearing On You), you know that life has been wearing on me just a little. But God has this way of knowing what we need and bringing people into our lives to help us know we are not on this journey alone. And for that I am so very thankful and want to celebrate that.

I choose to celebrate all of YOU who are gathered here tonight, who choose to come hear and read my words. You each are such incredible gifts in my life! I LOVE YOU ALL!

I choose to celebrate that my friend is another year older today. I am so blessed to call her one of my dearest friends. Happy Birthday CT!

I choose to celebrate life…as life is so delicate. I think of my new blog friend Andrew who is suffering and more than likely, living his last days.

I choose to celebrate the peace that only God can bring about in a world that is constantly bombarded with fear and war.

I choose to celebrate our similarities rather than our differences.

I choose to celebrate the new life being born into the world each and every day. May they all know the power of your love!

I choose to celebrate the relationships in my life; the relationships that continually nurture me as they each show me the power of your love.

I choose to celebrate that I am a beloved daughter of the one true king and I pray that my friends know this truth too especially on the days when they don’t feel like they are that beloved daughter or son of the one true king.

I choose to celebrate the ordinary and extraordinary moments.
I choose to celebrate the small things and the big things.

And today, during a week, when I haven’t necessarily felt like celebrating, I am taking the time and choosing to simply celebrate!

This is totally the song that popped into my head 
when I heard the word prompt. Enjoy!
