Rejoice with me!

This afternoon I spent time hanging out with my brother. We froze our butts off in the garage as we went through box upon box, looking for those favorite things of our childhood memories. At times we felt overwhelmed, there was so much to look at. But I found the one thing that has eluded me for the past few months. As I drove up to the house I texted a few close girlfriends, letting them know I was going up to look for my mom's bible. I asked them to pray that I would find it today. We went through many boxes, and then there it was, at the bottom of the bin, waiting to be found. The feeling I got was so wonderful and I immediately wanted to throw an actual party, just for finding this bible. I then thought of this verse: "When the woman found the coin, she was filled with joy. Her joy was so great that she invited her neighbors to celebrate with her. She said, "Rejoice with me for I have found the coin that I had lost" (Lk. 15:9)
