Today's Christian Woman focuses on spiritual disciplines and practices to help you go deeper in your faith

Celebration

The writer of Hebrews tells us that Christ was anointed with the oil of joy. One of the ways Jesus drew others to him was his unreserved ability to celebrate, play, and rejoice in all things—including finding deep abiding joy in the moments of sorrow. Through this discipline, we too learn to live with unreserved delight and joy, to play, and to have a childlike exuberance and enjoyment of life, our world, and God's goodness.
