Dear Ones,
Hope you wake to a day of joy and some fun too. Al is going to get fitted for a crown this morning and this afternoon we are invited to friend’s for fellowship and prayer..and always a delicious dessert.Emoji The question for this week is, when is the last time you had a wonderful fun day full of joy and laughter and came away feeling lighter? What was the occasion? 
Devotions from Judy’s heart
  We have a Heavenly Father who is not only strong and mighty but also fun. So often we miss that part of Him and can become overly serious, so much so, that we feel guilty having a good time. But I have always thought that as His children we should have more fun than those in the world as we have a clear conscience and are forgiven.
    I was reading an article by Pastor Mark Roberts about how we have a fun God. Yes, He is holy but He is also the One who gives us deep joy and laughter. When Jesus walked on the earth, he went to celebrations and even provided the best wine at the wedding. And the Father of the prodigal didn’t hesitate to have a super party with feasting when His lost son returned.
  Wise King Solomon said in Eccl. 2:24-26 (ESV), “There is nothing better for a person than that he should eat and drink and find enjoyment in his toil This also, I saw, is from the hand of God, for apart from Him who can eat or who can have enjoyment.”   We have so much to celebrate for the Lord has filled our hearts with His joy.
   Recently we have had birthday parties, weddings and soon we will be going to Kurt’s for Thanksgiving.  There are so many occasions in life to celebrate and enjoy and to have fun. How do we expect non-believers to be attracted to the Lord if life is dull and boring? King David knew that true joy is found in the presence of the Lord (Psalm 16:11, and after all, He created us and knows us best.
We might ask ourselves today if we need more fun in our lives and what things can we change that hinder us from a full, fun life? We better get ready for one day, as it says in Revelation19, we will be present at the greatest party of all times, the Marriage Feast of the Lamb!
  Challenge for today: Ask the Holy Spirit to free your heart for more fun and joy in the Lord.
Blessings on your day and prayers and love, Judy
