Finding the Fun

A happy heart is good medicine and a cheerful mind works healing… Proverbs 17:22

Want to hear a funny story? I’ve got a lot of them, and they come from things that happened in my ordinary, everyday life. Now, I wasn’t laughing when those stories were in the making, but I’m glad i can laugh about them now.

For example, I didn’t think it was funny when i couldn’t get my hair to stay in place, but if you’d seen what i did about it, you certainly would have laughed. It wasn’t amusing when i tried to make clothes, especially for the people who had to wear them. And I was so irritated when Dave threw paper towels over the grocery store aisle at me, but I realize now, he just knew how to have a little fun no matter what he was doing. I’m glad I’ve learned to look at times like these and see the humor in them.

Now, I know that not everything in life is necessarily enjoyable, but I think we all need to learn to have more fun in our lives. And I bet if you took time to think about it every day, you could find a moment that brought you joy or that you can laugh about now.

God wants His children to have some fun. The Bible says, A happy heart is a good medicine. I think we all need a healthy dose of laughter every day–many times during the day. You just can’t overdose on joy!

I encourage you to deliberately look for something to smile or laugh about every day… and be sure to share a smile or a laugh with someone else and brighten their day too!
