We were in Walmart buying groceries for our New Orleans trip and there were two little boys that were LAUGHING non stop! I mean these little guys were about 5 & 7 and they were just having a great time laughing. When I met up with them in the produce section their grandfather looked a bit put out with them. I just couldn’t help myself. I asked the youngest one if he would please share his JOY with me?! He looked at me rather oddly and I told him that I hoped he never lost his joy and his laughter.
Jesus said that we must come to Him like little children. CHILDREN are fun and full of laughter! Somehow, the older we get the less we laugh. Laughter is like medicine for our soul; A merry heart doeth good like medicine. So this year, let’s try to laugh more. After all, Jesus said in John 10:10 that He came so that we could have and enjoy our lives! So smile, laugh, and enjoy yourself. This is the day the Lord has made; rejoice and be glad in it!
