Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice! Philippians 4:4 NASB Really, Paul? Always? If only Paul could travel to our time and understand what we're going through right now, maybe he would get why we just don't feel like rejoicing all the time. A pandemic, racial tensions, protests, riots, forest fires, hurricanes, an election year, delayed school starts, closed businesses, cancellations, lock-downs, and deaths--among all the normal struggles of life. Don't even talk to me about political debates, masks, toilet paper, hand sanitizer . . .
