It's Noelle's birthday. Many years it falls in the midst of our Daniel Fast, just as it did when she turned 8. That year, I made an oreo cake, we invted frieds and family, and we celebrated. We will do the same tonight, with her choice of dinner menu, because life is precious and worthy of celebration.
There will be cake. When the party's over, we resume our fast.
Isn't that the way life is--unruly and imposing on our plans? Make room for that. It just might be exactly what God planned.
For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven:
