Today on Perry and Shawna Mornings we talk about how to celebrate good times when it’s hard! First Shawna shares what makes God celebrate—when sinners like you and me come home. When we celebrate God’s amazing works of salvation, we reflect God and also, it contagious to those around us! Then Perry and Shawna have a conversation about celebrating in the desert. Desert is hard and right now the world is in a desert. But we can celebrate that God is teaching us to trust him much more deeply and he is preparing us to make us a much greater blessing to our world on the other side of pandemic. And finally we find out that gratitude and celebration are connected at the hip. Because no matter how difficult life gets, there is always something to be thankful for. And more than one thing. And every one of those gifts in life can be springboards to celebration, even when life is hard.
