It is customary to celebrate birthdays, graduations, anniversaries, retirements, and other promotions or achievements. However, the real celebration is one for the lost who has found life in Christ. If you have a loved one who has run away from you to a distant land, be encouraged. God hears your prayers and at some point he or she will come to his or her senses and return home. Start rejoicing and be glad because God is faithful and His love endures to all generations.
