Have you ever thought about how weird clapping is? We slap our hands together, either in unison, or in a chaotic approach we call applause, and somehow we all know it means "yay!"

I kind of love it! I'm not sure if other animals do this - trained seals clap, and trained apes, but it appears to be a uniquely human thing as far as I could find out in my quick research.

Clapping has a way of waking up a room. We all love to be celebrated and affirmed, and applause is a universal way of telling people we approve.

So how much more important is it, then, to applause our creator-God, the great lover, who has given us more than we could ever hope for or imagine!?
