Cultivating a Merry Heart

a day of fun and laughter

Thank you that in Your vast understanding You gave us laughter to make us forget, to restore our wounded spirits, brighten the journey, lighten the load.  Majorie Holmes

The writer of proverbs wrote, "A merry heart does good, like medicine."'What God has always known, medical studies now prove - laughter helps you cope with problems, gives you sense a well being, and even boosts your immune system. Not to mention, laughter is fun! After a good laugh, life seems less stressful. Struggles, which may have felt overwhelming, become more manageable. Even irritations with others are soothed when we share a laugh together.What a joyful way to embrace the simple life- with a merry heart to lift our spirits and ready laughter to ease away our troubles.
