Celebrate


Who says dinosaurs are extinct? Evidently they are Steeler fans as well. I found this dinosaur this summer while on a missions trip to Pittsburgh. At the time he was emerging out of a mural of Noah's ark. I was pleasantly surprised yesterday, when a friend sent me pictures from the victory parade in Pittsburgh, to find the dinosaur had joined the festivities.

Celebration is an important part of life. Success and good times can become easily lost among the myriad of responsibility and quick pace at which we live. Seldom do we erect monuments marking moments of great significance in our lives, that we can look back on in times of trial and struggle, resurrecting the joy of the occasion. Celebrations are cause to spend time doing what we love with people we love. Celebration allows us to relax and unwind, and reflect on that things that really matter in life.

What are the things you celebrate in your life?

I have never been one to celebrate my own accomplishments or successes. I just have never made the time. Once one thing is done, there are always more to move on to. Maybe this is part of the counterculture that is me. However, when it comes to my daughter, a make as big a deal of her big moments as I can.
