Cheerful sunflowers in decorated Mason jars serve as the centerpiece for today’s anniversary dinner. A chocolate cake with homemade peanut butter frosting begs my attention. I scrape the side of the baking dish, and savor the flavor.
Four years ago, I prayed a big audacious impossible prayer. Four year ago today, God answered that prayer. Today is my day to celebrate this monumental occasion with my God, a special day just between him and me.
I am anxiously awaiting my family to return home from school and soccer practice so we can dive into dinner and this cake!
“This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.” (Psalm 118:24, KJV)
As Christ followers, we celebrate the obvious holidays such as Christmas and Easter. Do we remember to celebrate the personal days of answered prayers? August 23rd is my own personal day of celebration. Today is a day to celebrate! Today is a day to eat cake!
How do you celebrate the anniversaries of answered prayers? Do you have a special date that you celebrate? If so please share.
