"According to Dallas Willard, 'We engage in celebration when we enjoy ourselves, our life, our world, in conjunction with our faith and confidence in God's greatness, beauty, and goodness. We concentrate on our life and world as God's work and as God's gift to us.' Thus celebration is inextricably linked with worship. Willard continues by describing celebration as 'the completion of worship, for it dwells on the greatness of God as shown in his goodness to us.'"
--Richard Foster and Julia Roller, "A Year With God"
Enjoy life - and give thanks. That is living worship and joy all at once. When our faith intertwines with daily life, there is great celebration at the simple joys that God provides.
The key is noticing.
