REJOICE

I can recall a memorable moment many years ago when Susan and I were taking Kimberly, age 2, and her slightly younger cousin, Able, to church in the car. Kimberly was in a foul humor that morning, but her smily faced cousin decided it was time for a word of exhortation. Though he could berely talk, he looked her in the face and said happily, "Rejoice Kimmy!" We didn't think Able even knew that word, but he certainly knew the context in which to use it. Since that time, we’ve often used Able's exhortation when ever we see Kimberly's mood begin to deflate.
