must you shout? YES!

"Shout for joy to the LORD, all the earth.  Worship the LORD with gladness;
come before Him with joyful songs; Know that the LORD is God.
It is He who made us, and we are His; we are His people, the sheep of His pasture.
Psalm 100:1-3

"My lips will Shout for joy when I sing praise to You -- I whom You have delivered." Psalm 71:23

For weeks my lips were sealed with a sweet secret. It took all the strength i could muster to keep my excitement from bubbling out.  Five weeks ago a special young man proposed to my daughter and the very next day they married!  The first news we shared immediately, but the latter we postponed until after her college graduation. Holding back when you want to shout is a difficult thing to do.

The telling of some good news requires waiting for the right time.  But the Good News of what Jesus has done in our life does not.  May the joy of His mercy and grace be forever on the tip of our tongue and heart.  A missed chance to shout of His Love is a missed chance to share Him with another... and that someone might be in need of His saving grace and peace.

have a sharing-filled day!
