it bums me out that i've already heard/seen people being grumpy today. mainly at things like traditions. to be more specific....people being grumpy toward the tradition of others saying what they're thankful for on Thanksgiving. i feel like we also see these people getting grumpy when they watch someone else open a birthday gift on their birthday, or maybe when they see a couple going out on a date on their anniversary. there are certain things we do on certain days to help us remember and to celebrate.

But thank God! He gives us victory over sin and death through our Lord Jesus Christ.
1 Corinthians 15:57 (NLT)

that's exactly what i'm remembering and celebrating today! i'm remembering the ultimate sacrifice made to save all humanity from eternal suffering and CELEBRATING the victory over death so that i can be victorious over sin by the power of Jesus Christ!
